I moved to Abington when I was 5, and still live here at the age of 25. Living here for 20 years has allowed me to see a lot of what Abington has to offer for people of all ages. For kids, the school district is great, plenty of playgrounds, tons of sports teams, many kids. For teenagers, there are a lot of parks that have basketball nets, soccer and baseball fields, etc. Teenagers have many options for clubs they could join, jobs they can get, and places to volunteer. As an adult, I still love having all of those parks such as Alvethorpe, but I also love going to Lorimer for its hiking trail. Abington has many things to offer but I've always been grateful for the gyms, the mall, YMCA, the bar scenes, restaurants, all of the scenic routes, etc. Abington has been great to me over the past 20 years and I think it would be the same for anyone else. If I had to change anything about Abington, I would say fix up the high school.
Review Abington Township
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!
