Allison Park Reviews

35 reviews
All Categories
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.
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.
I love it here! I'm close to everything (grocery store, restaurants, downtown Pittsburgh). I just wish the cost of living regarding house purchasing was better. I find it unaffordable for me at the present time.
