A convenient commute to areas in the greater Pittsburgh region makes WEDIG PA's area an ideal location for those who work in any number of places. Many choose to live in one of our five communities but work in larger metropolitan areas. Doing so, they have the best of both worlds, working in a vibrant urban area and living in a small, friendly community. This isn't just an area to live--it's a place to call home. Quality of life may be defined by any number of offerings, such as opportunities to live a healthy lifestyle, actively pursue your beliefs or easily access goods and services that you need.
City and county parks can be found in our communities, as well as fitness centers, shopping plazas, churches and citizens' groups. Local parks like Westmoreland County's Northmoreland Park in Allegheny Township, Memorial Park in New Kensington and Lower Burrell's parks, like Burrell Lake and Wolf Pack, offer great reasons for visitors and residents of our area to get out and play. These parks are home to a wide variety of year-round activities ranging from ice fishing to community festivals to sporting events.
From fashion finds to household goods, bargains can be found in the local area, from Hyde Park Plaza in Allegheny Township to the Hillcrest Shopping Center in Lower Burrell. These locations provide for a wide array of general and specialized shopping needs. In New Kensington, the Riverview Plaza also offers more shopping, both for the home and office, as well as great dining options. In addition, our communities are just a short drive to the Galleria at Pittsburgh Mills, the Monroeville Mall and various shopping districts and stores in and around Pittsburgh.
Those who already call this region home know that if you seek an area with an affordable cost of living and a high quality of life, you need to look no further than the WEDIG PA region and the surrounding Alle-Kiski Valley. With the great opportunities here for shopping, dining and entertainment and a beautiful setting with rolling hills, deep forests and two rivers, you can find this to be a great place not only for play, but for life.
