Sheraden is a neighborhood in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in the United States.[2] Nearby neighborhoods include Windgap, Chartiers City, Crafton Heights, Esplen, and Elliott.

The neighborhood was named for William Sheraden, a settler who gave land for the construction of a railroad depot in exchange for the naming rights.[3] Sheraden's original homestead still stands at 2803 Bergman Street, easily distinguished for the two sycamore trees which grow together to form an arch, a legacy of Sheraden's horticulturalist grandson.[4] Originally incorporated as Sheraden Borough in 1894, it grew quickly and was annexed by the City of Pittsburgh in 1907.[4] Shortly thereafter, the Public School Board of Pittsburgh opened numerous educational facilities around Sheraden, including Langley High School, completed in 1923, which replaced the former borough's Riverview High School.[citation needed]

Sheraden Park includes a swimming pool, tennis courts, ballfields, outdoor basketball courts and picnic and playground areas.[2]
