On behalf of the Board of Commissioners,
I am pleased to welcome you to the official website of the
Township of Wilkins, Allegheny County, Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
Wilkins Township is a Township of the First Class, located in the eastern suburbs
of the City of Pittsburgh. It is predominantly a residential community of approximately
6,565 individuals. Wilkins offers its residents wonderful parks in each of
our neighborhoods with ample green space, sports fields, pavilions for picnicking,
and walking trails. We also maintain a beautiful new Community Center which
serves as a hub for the many activities.
Although our major business area is the Route 22 corridor, we are proud to
claim two other thriving business areas on Brown Avenue and Greensburg Pike.
A small light industrial area is located on Lower Rodi Road.
