Abington Reviews

36 reviews
All Categories
Definitely has a hometown feel, close community, school and educational systems are getting better, job opportunities are limited and there are many neighborhood parks along with a family oriented Island Grove for everyone to enjoy. Unfortunately, the drug epidemic is just as bad as everywhere else. However the town has taken steps to get the community involved and make them aware.
Review Abington
Abington is a really small, tight-knit community where everyone knows what's going on around town. Our schools are improving (building a new middle/high school in the coming year) and so are our town programs and community. Overall, Abington is great place to live
I have been involved in fundraising for the creation of an Abington Dog Park. Abington has been my new home for the past two years and I have not had one poor interaction with any of its citizens. I am part of a social media account for the town and witness others helping each other out in various ways. We recently had a house fire in the town and the next day strangers set up a clothing drive for that family. It speaks volumes as to what type of town this is.
