Ambridge Reviews

27 reviews
All Categories
With the police station being the center of the entire town, you know that there is safety at hand. Are 9-1-1 Center is on-hand not far from the police station. The town has plenty of parks for the kids and adults. They have a beautiful Botanical Garden that they set up every year behind the police station so you know it's completely safe along with a small skate ramp for the local children with skateboards. Ambridge overall keeps everything kid friendly and family-friendly. I would love to see the main street of Ambridge, live again, though. Most of the strip of stores have all shut down. There are some wonderful breakfast places and small businesses, but most of the store fronts are now closed.
Review Ambridge
There are so many things to be said about Ambridge. I really enjoy all the different types of restaurants, and there are many older looking buildings that are just amazing to look at.
My problem with this town is that there are not many jobs available. If you are looking for work outside of fast food, bartending etc. you do not have very many options.
I also wish the towns people cared a little more for the town. If people of the community would come together Ambridge would be a nicer place.
Not a very up to date town. Many run-down looking buildings on the main street, but the high school is large and looks fairly good condition. No sense of town pride. A lot of parades, though.
