Abington Township Reviews

All Categories
There is plenty to do if you're willing to put the time into finding them. There are things to do in Glenside and center city Philadelphia is only 30 minutes away by train and the King of Prussia Mall is an hour on the turnpike. If you like to shop but dont want to go far, the Willow Grove Park Mall is always right there as well. There are parks and the like around but be warned, there is absolutely no movie theater in Abington. The closest normal movie theater is in Warrington and the closest movie tavern is in Flourtown.
Lived here for over ten years and have always felt comfort while in Abington. A friendly and diverse neighborhood and also has the best of both worlds as far as little local shops or go to the Willow Grove mall and shop! Also has great schools! If community is important to you then choose Abington!
I feel completely safe and secure in my neighborhood. I am totally comfortable venturing around my neighborhood alone at all hours of the day/night and feel protected at all times. Minimal crimes have occurred near me and most of the residents who live in my neighborhood are friendly, law-abiding citizens who are respectful of the property of others. The police are efficient and quickly responsive if their services are ever needed. Police cars frequently visit my neighborhood and are spotted a couple times a week.
