Rostraver Township is one of Pennsylvania's most scenic, and fastest growing townships. With a population of over 11,000, Rostraver is growing commercially, and in the number of families who live here. It's strategic location on major highways, combined with large tracts of open land, makes the township particularly attractive to commercial enterprises. More than 300 businesses contribute to Rostraver's reputation as the finest and largest shopping area in the mid Monongahela River valley.
Beyond its beautiful, rural atmosphere, residents enjoy educational and recreational opportunities. Cedar Creek Park offers activities ranging from exploring the unspoiled beauty of the natural gorge to enjoying a free concert series at the park amphitheater to participating in sports such as softball, baseball, soccer, volleyball, basketball, and cross country skiing. Sixteen pavilions equipped with water and electricity, accommodating groups up to 500 people, make Cedar Creek Park a favorite spot for family outings or company picnics.
Municipal services available to residents of the township include a police force, three volunteer fire departments, and an emergency medical service with advanced life support units. Churches representing many denominations, services, and youth organizations, exist in Rostraver.
