Shaw Park

The large picnic shelter at Shaw Park offers outdoor grilling facilities, two beach sand volleyball courts, and five tennis courts.


Parks and Recreation

With nearly 5% of the Town acreage dedicated to public park use and open space, outdoor recreation is within a few blocks from nearly everywhere in the Borough.  One of the Town’s outstanding features is the 1.3-mile riverside park overlooking the Ohio River.  The park stretches the length of the Borough and is a popular regional gathering place for runners, walkers, bikers and rollerbladers.  The linear park’s panoramic backdrop of the pristine undeveloped hillsides across the Ohio River is matchless in this part of western PA.
