Franklin Park as a small suburb community that all in all loves to help each other out and give back to one another. most people are extremely friendly, always willing to give a helping hand, and love to build good and healthy relationships with one another. We all like to make the area around us safer, cleaner, healthier, and happier. We take education, and our jobs very seriously. But, with that being said, we all like to come together and have fun too; whether it be at the neighborhood pool or neighborhood park. The standard of living here is amazing.

Great area to live. Very private but very close to downtown and shopping. Supermarkets are extremely close and good shopping. One of the best areas to live in the Pittsburgh area.
Wonderful area. Very safe, diverse, and calming. Great public school district, and good opportunities for student age people to get involved in the community
