New Resident Guide


On behalf of over 25,000 and growing, residents, I wish to welcome you to Moon Township, Allegheny County, Pennsylvania! The community of Moon is known for its excellent schools, quality of life, active community, and strategic location.

As Moon continues to grow residentially and commercially, the Township also continues to review and expand what we have to offer to the residents. Currently, Moon residents enjoy three spectacular parks and over 600 acres of green space. Our largest park, Moon Park is where most of the actions take place. With two baseball fields, a softball field, three soccer fields, basketball, tennis, pickleball, and sand volleyball courts, Clearview Federal Splashpad, five pavilions, an amphitheater, and the new Miracle League Facility, there is always something happening for all ages.

Moon Senior Connection is a thriving group of over 400 members. All area seniors are invited to become a member and join in on the daily activities including, arts & crafts, music, exercise classes, cards, bingo, lunches, and the occasional adventure out to local exhibits. Each year the Board of Supervisors allows for local road improvements and improvements to the Township facilities. In 2022, the Township will continue with building renovations awarded in 2021 at the Downes Fires Station, Township Municipal Center, 120 Mooncrest Facility, and Dog Park on Beaver Grade Road along with placing the newly designed Public Safety Building to house the Moon Township Police Department out to bid.

The Moon Area School District continues to receive acclamations for the education it provides for the students and Robert Morris University since opening the UPMC Event Center has brought entertainment options for all ages to this region.

While we look forward to a bright future, we always remember our history. The story is that settlers arriving in what is today the western portion of Allegheny County named the region “Moon” after the crescent-shaped curvature of the Ohio River. From men like John Meek, Robert Loudon, and John Vail, who received the first land grants that eventually formed Moon Township, to the Mooncrest residents who produced armor plates, munitions, and ships during World War II, to the aviation pioneers who opened our township to new businesses, Moon Township has enjoyed a long history of growth and prosperity.

I am confident speaking for the Township Board of Supervisors and staff to say, we take our responsibilities seriously. Our 2022 budget allows us to continue with capital improvements, maintain our street program, plan for stormwater improvements, provide the highest levels of safety, and enhance parks and recreation programming. But what is truly noteworthy, this is done while maintaining the current tax millage rate of 2.74 for the past nine years.

So, welcome to Moon Township! We invite you to become involved in the community, study a new interest, support the local businesses, visit our farmers’ market, enjoy the parks and nearly 20 miles of trails, or become a volunteer. We are happy you decided to Make It Moon! It is a great place to live, learn, work, and play.
