Ben Avon Reviews

3 reviews
I am a long term resident and have watched the town decline. The homes are nice and it is walk-able. There is no nightlife. As far as safety there is now a registered sex offender in town, drug overdoses and there have been many car break-ins. This is a very high drama town. The people are unfriendly unless it is in their interest and want something from you. The schools are okay if the student plays a sport. There is literally no diversity.

Comfortable place to live. Variety of homes, both in size and grandeur. Very walking and pet friendly. Interesting history.
Growing up in Ben Avon has been a great experience. The neighborhood is very safe and the people who live here are some of the nicest people you will meet. I have made lifelong friends from this neighborhood.
