Key Features

Local business and national retailers

Whether you're on the hunt for a delicious bite to eat or just need to run a few errands, you'll never have to leave Peters Township to find what you're looking for.

Heisler's Market—a family-owned grocery store that has served the Pittsburgh area since the 1920s—is known for its broad selection and on-site cafe. The Simple Greek restaurant is a McMurray staple that has since transformed into a national chain. And if you're looking for even more name-brand retailers, just take a drive to the nearby Tanger Outlets.

Indoor and outdoor recreation

Eager to spend an afternoon exploring the great outdoors? Peters Township is home to eight public parks, and the community also offers a variety of sports leagues for all ages.

Come take a tranquil walk near the water at Peters Lake Park, a 189-acre green space equipped with a .75-mile wood chip walking trail, fishing pier, kayak launch, and much more. Located in the heart of Venetia, Peterswood Park is known for its spectacular amphitheater and sports fields, as well as its summer concert series. Residents can even become members of the local community center for just $10 a year.
