I have grown up in Franklin Township and have lived here for more than 15 years. I would say it is a very diverse and beautiful town. They are many local activities that take place, and everyone in Franklin is very friendly. A new elementary school just opened in town not too long ago, and it shows how Franklin Township is growing and developing. I am truly grateful for living in a town like Franklin Park!

When I moved here years ago it was not as bad as it is now, too many people, in my opinion it has become over populated, too many drivers and majority of them CAN'T drive, I find it quite dangerous at times. I believe this area is not big enough to have so many stores and plaza's. Overall I am far too ready to move somewhere else.
I have grown up in Franklin Park area and was involved in the community through my passion for soccer. Through my experience and participation within the Franklin Township Soccer Club I met many individuals whose positive influence has helped me become the person I am today. Residents of Franklin Park are dedicated to the area and contribute in many meaningful ways. Franklin Park is a true suburban area with well kept and maintained outside spaces for all to enjoy throughout the year. It is a diverse community with caring positive residents. Overall it is a great place to live and raise a family.
