The area of Wexford is made up of four different municipalities: Franklin Park Borough, McCandless Township, Pine Township, and Marshall Township. Money magazine ranked the area as the “28th Best Place to Live” in 2005. In 2006, they retracted it from the list, and Trib Live subsequently published a humor article titled “Unreal! Wexford bounced from list” that highlighted the locals’ pride in being residents of Wexford. The area was named after County Wexford in Ireland.
Located near both I-79 and I-279, Wexford is a booming place for employment, with a commercial landscape featuring corporate chains, car dealerships, local small businesses, and more, all focused around Route 19, the main thoroughfare of Wexford Flats. As Wexford is continuously growing, with an increasing number of subdivisions and neighborhoods, Route 19 was expanded to serve the increasing population. The easy access to Pittsburgh and great schools within the area make Wexford a favorite location for professional athletes, celebrities, and medical and university personnel.
Though the area is often defined by its commercial successes, the residential areas are suburban and surrounded by local farms and rolling green hills. Local attractions include North Park and the North Park Lake adjacent to Wexford, which offers hiking and biking trails, a paved five-mile running path around the lake, pavilions, an outdoor ice rink, a golf course, dog parks, various playgrounds, a C.O.P.E. course, and even restaurants and shops.
The North Allegheny Senior High School in Wexford is considered one of the top high schools in the state, with a student-to-teacher ratio of approximately 13:1 and an education system that caused the Pittsburgh Business Times to rank its 11th grade as “3rd out of 104 Western PA High Schools” in both 2012 and 2013. Due to being comprised of four municipalities, Wexford also includes Pine-Richland High School from the Pine-Richland School District, Marshall Middle School, and Wexford Elementary School, along with Vincentian Academy.
