Great neighborhood to grow up in. Schools are great, community is great, everything is great. However, this probably isn't the best place for people without kids in their 20s and 30s.

There's not much going on here. To find anything you have to travel to downtown Pittsburgh, which isn't far, but if you're an active individual who likes to meet like-minded individual in a social setting, live closer to the city. The adjacent township Mt Lebanon is a little closer to the city and has slightly more nightlife on the Route 19 strip.

I grew up here and honestly it’s not that bad of an area. The school district has gotten way too strict with things recently but that honestly only effects the students.
After awhile there isn’t much to do here for fun especially in the winter. Me and my friends usually have to leave bethel in order to go do something fun. But in general most of the people here are middle class and all good families. There is little diversity from the last time I checked we were 97% Caucasian but most suburbs around Pittsburgh happen to be that way. It was a very good district I grew up in.
Bethel Park is a beautiful town, filled with some of the most wonderful people I have ever known. A wonderful school district, beautiful homes, and kind people, Bethel Park has been my home for years and, though I have been to many other towns, my hometown will always be my favorite.
