Welcome to Crafton!
Crafton, Pennsylvania, a “Tree City USA” community, is one of the best-kept secrets of the Pittsburgh region. With its beautiful, historic Victorian homes, tree-lined streets, and safe neighborhoods, it’s a gem of a borough just 7 miles from downtown Pittsburgh. Crafton’s residents benefit from their close proximity to the Parkway, Interstate 79, the new busway, and the Pittsburgh International Airport. Top this off with a beautiful scenic valley by Chartiers Creek, and you’ll know why generations of families call Crafton home.
Crafton awarded playground renovation grant through DCED
On September 17, State Representative Dan Deasy’s office announced that Crafton Borough has been awarded $175,000 in grant funding to support playground safety renovations through DCED’s Greenways, Trails & Recreation Program. This grant award will help fund the Crafton Park Playground Safety Surface Project, which will install a rubberized tile safety surface to replace the current mulch ground cover. The press release can be viewed on his website. We’re grateful for the continued advocacy for our community and we look forward to the “big reveal” of our new playground surface in the near future!
