Proud home of our nation’s Flag Day holiday, our community - the Township of Collier - was founded in June of 1875. Now, and in our second century, the Township of Collier prides itself in being one of the region’s best communities in which to live, work and raise a family. Located six miles southwest of Pittsburgh, in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, Collier is readily accessible, having its own exit from Interstate 79. Close proximity to the City of Pittsburgh enhances Collier Township’s quality of life. Residents take advantage of the cultural, business and higher education opportunities of a larger city, while also enjoying our suburb’s excellent public safety, many convenient shopping districts, well-maintained recreational facilities and top-notch schools.
If you live here, we hope you’ll visit this site often to keep up on what is happening in the community. If you live elsewhere, welcome to Collier Township – and come back again.
As home to the nation's Flag Day holiday, the Friends of Collier Parks and Recreation are offering citizens the opportunity to purchase engraved and numbered granite bricks along the Flag Day Monument path. <a href="http://www.colliertownship.net/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/vetpathstones.pdf">Click here</a> for more information on how you can purchase an inscribed brick to honor and remember a special veteran. This is a Friends of Collier Parks & Recreation project.
