Sheraden is an affordable family neighborhood and the largest neighborhood in Pittsburgh's western region.

Many houses in Sheraden are known locally as "Pittsburgh Boxes," a cross between the wide, Prairie-style homes of the Midwest and the urban Victorians found in the east. Translated into layman's terms, it means that you can find a spacious, functional and affordable home with amenities like a large front porch and hardwood floors.

Sheraden Park, set in a wooded valley, is the focus for most of this neighborhood's recreational activities. The park houses a swimming pool, tennis courts, ball fields, basketball courts and plenty of picnic and playground areas. Residents also enjoy a newly renovated library and community center, and senior center.

On a summer evening, the bleachers are full at the local Little League games, while younger neighbors populate the community's many playgrounds and tot lots. Langley High School is attended by many of the neighborhood's teens.

Convenient transit service is available from Sheraden to downtown Pittsburgh or the Pittsburgh International Airport.
