Welcome to the official website of Avalon Borough.  Visit often for updated information as we prepare for community events and borough activities.


The Borough of Avalon, located 6 miles northwest of Pittsburgh, is where 4,705 residents call home (Source: 2010 Census). Just .6 square miles nestled along the banks of the Ohio River, Avalon offers many big city amenities.  Residents have access to an excellent public transportation system and is conveniently located to State Route 65 and Interstates 79 and 279.


Avalon's close proximity to Pittsburgh allows sports fans to have a variety of teams to follow from college action football and basketball to professional football, hockey and baseball.   The cultural district offers endless theater, symphony and concert possibilities throughout the year and will satisfy anyone's entertainment needs.  Avalon offers convenient local shopping and a variety of dining experiences as well as being minutes away from a number of major shopping malls.


Northgate School District keeps families involved with Friday night football games and the Homecoming Parade in the fall, various band and chorus concerts and other sports throughout the year and finally bringing the school year to a close with the spring musical.  Annual community events keep residents busy with 5K races, church festivals, boys baseball and girls softball organizations, fireworks and "dumpster" days keep the residents involved and proud of living in Avalon Borough.
