There are two basic ways (and some variations!) to get to Chartiers Valley High School, which is just off Route 50 in Collier Twp/Bridgeville.  


One is via the Parkway West, getting off at Exit 2 (Carnegie/Heidleberg), bearing left on the exit ramp, continuing on Lydia Street for a few blocks to turn left onto Rt 50, Washington Ave.  You'll continue on this for 2 miles, passing a few strip malls, until you reach Thoms Run Rd.  Turn right up a hill (passing a pretty nifty drive-through Starbucks) and then turn a quick left up the hill to the campus grounds.  The pool entrance is around the back of the building (continue straight, not right, if they let you)  in the parking alcove across from the football stadium. There is limited parking along the outer perimeter of the building and there are three large lots in the back and adjacent to Thoms Run Road.


The other main way is via I-79.  Take Parkway West to Route 79 south to Exit 55 (Heidelberg-Kirwin Heights). Turn left at the traffic light and proceed north on Route 50 for approximately ¾ mile to the first traffic light. Turn left at the light onto Thoms Run Rd. The school entrance is ½ mile on the left. The pool entrance is around the back of the building (continue straight, not right, if they let you)  in the parking alcove across from the football stadium. There is limited parking along the outer perimeter of the building and there are three large lots in the back and adjacent to Thoms Run Road.

Everyone has a different opinion on the easiest way to get to North Hills High School, mainly because it lies between Perry Hwy and McKnight Road and is not that far from Route 28.   


One route from the city is

·                     Take I-279 North to exit 19 (Perrysville exit) to Perrysville Avenue (Route 19)

·                     Make a left at light onto Route 19. Follow Route 19 north through to Rochester Road (you will pass West View Plaza and go through the West View Business District).

·                     At the light make a right onto Rochester Road. As you descend the hill, the school entrance will be on your left.

Just one of the many possible routes from Fox Chapel would be to...

·                     Follow 28 South

·                     Exit at Millvale and immediately turn right onto Evergreen Rd

·                     Follow "Blue Belt" signs to Babcock Blvd; turn right onto Babcock.

·                     Follow Babcock Blvd to Rochester Rd. Make a left onto Rochester.

·                      As you ascend a hill, you will turn right to go up hill into North Hill High School campus.

The first building you come to on your right is the junior high.  The pool is located in the senior high school further on--make a left past the junior high to go to the pool entrance at the end of the building. Parking is available right in front of the entrance to the pool seating area. Note: We are assuming the pool renovations didn't change its location!

The pool is located at John H. Linton Middle School, which is off of Saltsburg Road in Penn Hills. It is actually shorter to go from the Hulton Bridge to Saltsburg Rd to Aster Street, but the number of turns can make it hard to explain and easy to get lost.  Listed below are the "will not get lost" directions.  However, if you know how to get to Saltsburg Road from Hulton Rd, then you could take Saltsburg almost to Verona Rd, making a left onto Aster.

·                     Take Route 28 South to the Highland Park Bridge. Take left lane ramp to Allegheny River Boulevard.

·                     Follow Allegheny River Boulevard to second light (Sandy Creek Road). Make a right onto Sandy Creek.

·                     Follow Sandy Creek Road to Frankstown Road, make a left.

·                     Follow Frankstown Road to Saltsburg Road. At light at Frankstown and Saltsburg make a right.

·                     Follow Saltsburg until you see the "Library" sign (Aster Street). Make a right.

Follow this road to the driveway and around the school for the pool entrance.

MapQuest Directions


Google Directions/Map from "School Matters"

In general, Google and MapQuest have either been taking us across Hulton Bridge or further up to the Tarentum bridge.  We have the MapQuest link posted and you can just put the address into a Google directions link if you want.



On 1/4/09...Bill Knox (thank you!) offered these directions he sought from a New Ken native:


From the high school:  left on Field Club, right onto Powers Run, left onto Old Freeport Rd.  Make a right across the Hulton Bridge and continue up Hulton Rd which eventually becomes Coxcomb Hill (similar to "School Matters" directions link in left column here)


You will just keep going straight until you finally descend into the New Kensington area.  Go on alert at the stoplight where McDonalds is on your right.  There's a CVS at this intersection, too.


Continue straight through this stoplight and at the Sunoco station, bear right.

You'll hit another light where there's an Eat'n Park and an Arby's.  Continue straight.  You'll come to another light with an Eckerd (Rite Aide now?).  Continue straight.  High school track is on the left (though we probably won't see this in the dark).  At the next light,  turn left into the high school campus.  Make a quick right into the parking lot.   


There are two pedestrian bridges (we think that's what she meant) leading to buildings.  Pool building is on right.
