Wilkins Township is a Township of the First Class, located
in the eastern suburbs of the City of Pittsburgh. It is predominantly
a residential community of approximately 6917 individuals.
Wilkins offers its residents wonderful parks in each of our
neighborhoods with ample green space, sports fields, pavilions
for picnicking, and walking trials. We also maintain a beautiful
new Community Center which serves as a hub for the many activities
provided by our Recreational Advisory Board and many of our
Our residents are continually being served by an outstanding
Police Department, dedicated Public Works Department and the
scores of volunteers who man our Volunteer Fire Departments.
Although our major business area is the Route 22 corridor,
we are proud to claim two other thriving business areas; Brown
Avenue and Greensburg Pike. A small light industrial area is
located on Lower Rodi Road. The residents enjoy a diverse mix
of commercial establishments in each of these areas, which
are easily accessible from all neighborhoods. We are pleased
