Esplen

West Pittsburgh

Esplen is located west of Downtown Pittsburgh, and gains its richness from the Ohio River, which it borders.

This area was formed when a blasting crew working on railroad construction caused a landslide, and has been a part of Pittsburgh's legacy ever since.

Large frame houses abound in this affordable neighborhood, sitting proudly on the slopes above the river.

Esplen's all-purpose community center provides recreational facilities and events for its 600 residents. Proud neighbors work together to sponsor programs here.
