Bon Air

South Pittsburgh

What Bon Air lacks in geographic size, it more than makes up for in heart as a neighborhood that is dedicated to maintaining its residents' quality of life through the efforts and dedication of the entire community.

Located south of Downtown, Bon Air affords its residents the benefits of residing in a "suburban" setting, as well as the benefits of all that the City of Pittsburgh provides - such as great public transportation and access to the T line.

Civic pride is readily noticed as you walk or drive down the tree-lined streets, where the view includes well maintained homes and landscaped yards. The neighborhood is a balanced mix of families, young professionals and senior citizens.

The Marc Kolenda Basketball Court, Bon Air Tot Lot, and the recent addition of a Veteran's Monument area provide recreational and inspirational facilities for both the adults and children of Bon Air and the surrounding communities of Overbrook, Carrick, and Knoxville.

With the efforts and leadership provided by a community association in existence over 50 years, the neighborhood continues to grow and prosper.
