New Resident Guide


On behalf of over 24,000 residents, I wish to welcome you to Moon Township, Pennsylvania! Moon Township is known for its excellent schools, quality of life, active community, and strategic location.

This is an exciting time for our township. Moon residents enjoy three spectacular parks and over 600 acres of green space. Our largest park, Moon Park has recently undergone much development with additional amenities planned for 2021. Look for the opening of the new Miracle League field this spring or stop on by Moon Park and join in on a game of pickleball, basketball, or tennis.

Moon area seniors are invited to join the newly built Moon Senior Connection center at Tapestry. Moon Senior Connection has over 600 members and offers 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 2021, the Township will undertake several building renovations and additions and move forward with plans to design a new public safety building to house the Moon Township Police department. 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 think I can speak for our township Board of Supervisors and staff when I say that we take our responsibilities seriously. Our 2021 budget allows us to continue with capital improvements, maintain our street program, allow for stormwater improvements, provide the highest levels of safety and increases parks and recreation programming. But what is truly noteworthy, we can do all this without increasing taxes.

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