Allison park is a terrific town just outside of North Pittsburgh. A great place to raise children with blue ribbon public schools with higher than average SAT scores. There are also a multitude of outstanding private schools in the area. Allison park hosts many community and family functions each year especially around the Christmas, Halloween and the 4th of July. It is diverse with many professional, retirees and veterans and denominations of faith and outstanding hospitals. A great place to raise your family with average housing prices , low crime rate, great community center and fitness centers all while being close to the city of Pittsburgh. The one aspect that has always impressed me is the down to earth, friendly people that live here. One area I would like to see improved is for more fine dining restaurants to move into the area.
