Beltzhoover is a neighborhood in southern Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, in an area known as the South Hills.

The area is named for Melchior Beltzhoover who was a farmer there in the early 19th century. The community contains a park called McKinley Park. The neighborhood lies in the 18th ward and is predominantly an African American neighborhood.

The neighborhood is currently the subject of a revitalization effort by several local organizations, such as the Beltzhoover Concerned Citizens Development Corporation, the Hilltop Housing Initiative, and the Urban Redevelopment Authority.[2]
