Situated roughly seven miles southwest of Pittsburgh, Bethel Park is an affluent borough part of the Pittsburgh Metro Area and is bordered by Baldwin, Castle Shannon, Mt. Lebanon, South Park, Upper St. Clair, Whitehall and Peters Township, all of which comprise the “South Hills” region of Pittsburgh.
Bethel Park was originally settled in 1800 and first established as Bethel Township. It wasn’t until 1949 that Bethel Park became the borough it is today.
Bethel Park was also home to Pittsburgh’s first drive-in movie theater, South Park Drive-In, which closed in 1985. Luckily, a new wave of attractions has been ushered in since, as the Bethel Park Community Center, South Park Wave Pool, Hundred Acres Manor and South Hills Village provide residents and visitors with plenty to do. In addition to these amenities, Bethel Park is where Andy Warhol is buried, and visitors flock to his grave on a daily basis, leaving gifts and trinkets for the late artist.
One will never be at a loss when it comes to outdoor recreational activities in Bethel Park. Eleven community parks, as well as a dog park and various hiking trails provide endless opportunities for residents and visitors to be active, including youth and adult sporting leagues, tennis, sand volleyball, basketball and street hockey courts, pavilions and climbing gyms.
