Situated northeast of the City of Pittsburgh, Fox Chapel is only eleven miles from the Golden Triangle. The Borough covers nearly eight and one-half square miles and is surrounded by the Borough of Aspinwall and the Townships of O’Hara, Indiana and Harmar. With the exception of churches, private clubs and private schools, Fox Chapel is 100 percent residential.

Fox Chapel Borough continually strives to protect and maintain its unique ambience. Our wooded hills and parklands with miles of walking trails and residential developments with lot sizes that average one acre or greater are a valuable regional asset. Fox Chapel is a classic example of what can be done to preserve a rural atmosphere that includes tree protection and steep slope preservation in the very midst of urbanization. The services provided to residents such as garage door trash pickup and curbside leaf pickup is second to none. The Borough’s close proximity to the business and cultural hub of downtown Pittsburgh as well as Shady Side Academy, private clubs and its award-winning Fox Chapel Area School District make Fox Chapel a premier community in which to live.


The health and safety of our residents and employees is our highest priority.
