There are not many social places to go and hang out. It is a very friendly place to live though. There is a great school system that gives a very good education. Also, there is very little crime that occurs in Allison Park. It always feels like a safe place to be. Since it is a small area, it is common to know almost everyone here. Subsequently, I have made many friends through this community. Despite there being a lack in casual hangout locations, there is a good variety in job opportunity. Overall, I feel Allison Park is a nice location to live or just to visit.
Review Allison Park
Allison Park is a great neighborhood to live in. They are very family and community oriented through school community engagement and events for the community members to join and attend. The streets are clean and there are many activities that can be found around the suburb. Many parks including Hartwood Acres keep community members active and outside on nicer days. Many family owned business can be found in Allison Park that are well known and very tasty. Everyone knows everyone here making it a very welcoming community.
There are many housing options. I myself chose to live in an affordable older apartment complex. There are many housing options including townhouses, apartments, small houses, older houses, and huge newer houses. There is actually a brand new housing complex being built less than a mile away from me, including new huge houses. Considering all areas surrounding Pittsburgh, I would consider this area to be one of the safest. I never see vacant properties in this area - and, if I do, it's a rarity.
