Allison Park Reviews

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.

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.
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.
