Bethel Park Reviews

Lots of chain restaurants both eat in and fast food and several privately owned ones too. Galleria which borders bethel in Mt lebanon offers high end retail and south hills village mall offers a diverse selection of retail stores (and recently renovated). Home improvement stores are close by and from where I live, I can walk to the librsry, market district giant (grocery store), mall, bookstore, kohls, trolley line, target, walmart.... couldn't ask for more in a suburban setting!
I like how nice people can be. I do not like how expensive it is to live out here. Bethel has a good school system. I like how they have different levels in high school and for each subject the level varies. I like how big the public library is. I believe Bethel Park is a safe neighborhood and family friendly. Bethel is kinda of diversity, some people do not think they are very friendly to diverse people.
I have lived in Bethel Park my whole life. There is not many things to go in do. There are some good restaurants. The school district is pretty good, but could be better. I have never really noticed or been aware of much major crime, just little petty crimes.
