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.

Beginning Thursday, December 31, 2015, the following document contains Garbage Collection Instructions for the 
S. Birmingham Avenue road closure area.  

Residents on S. Birmingham, Hemlock and Eugene have been notified on Wednesday, December 30, 2015.  Notices were posted at each address advising of the change.

Please keep in mind this will be in effect until further notice.


********** BETWEEN FLORENCE & ORCHARD AVENUES ************
******* NO ACCESS THROUGH HEMLOCK AVENUE ****************
******* NO ACCESS FROM EUGENE AVENUE ************************

Avalon Borough is working with West View Water at this time regarding the Christmas Day water line break on S. Birmingham Avenue between Florence and Orchard Avenues.

With the severity of the leak, it is necessary to keep the road closed. We will keep residents updated as we determine what will be done with the situation.

We will contact Waste Management regarding your garbage pick up on S. BIrmingham Avenue, Hemlock Avenue and Eugene Avenue. We will notify residents once there is a plan in place.

Thank you for your patience in this matter.
