Overview

War Memorial Park is situated on approximately 20 acres of property located at 811 Blackburn Road. The Park was originally owned by the Sewickley Valley War Memorial Association and was transferred to the Borough of Sewickley in 2007. There are two Shelters on the park which are available for rental by both individuals and corporations. Shelter 1 is over the bridge and to the right of the playgrounds.  Shelter 2 is to the left of the playgrounds on top of the hill.  Along with the shelters, there is a public playground and walking trails. In conjunction with the Quaker Valley School District, the park is also used by the Quaker Valley Middle School Cross Country team for their home meets.  

Rentals

Changes have been made in the way shelters are reserved.  Beginning March 1,2018, we will begin taking Park Shelter reservations online only.  Reservations will only be accepted by submitting the online form and using epayment (PayPal).  The Borough will no longer take reservations through the Community Liaison/Police Department. 

Two shelters are available for rent.  To rent a shelter, please follow these steps.
  • Review our Shelter rules and regulations (PDF)
  • Select a shelter and use the calendar to choose your specific day(s) and time(s)
  • Complete the online form
  • Use e payment (PayPal) to submit payment.
Once your transaction is complete, you will receive a confirmation email.

The following is additional information you need in order to rent a shelter:
  • Reservations are taken beginning March 1st through the last Saturday of October of that year.
  • Restrooms/port-a-johns are available April 1 through the end of October weather permitting.
