I'm a city boy who moved here to go to North Hills High School. I live on the North Hills/Shaler border and there is a ton to do. Great food, Parks, and easy access to the city, North park, and Wexford. Not to mention Mcknight road is only a few minutes away. Overall, I love it. Me and my friends can do anything here.

Glenshaw is a great small town in a central location. You have quick access to downtown, the north hills and the rural farm communitites. Every one is friendly, looks out for each other and support the local town.
I have lived in the area for most of my life. When choosing to buy a home, Glenshaw was an easy choice. I can see myself raising my family here, in this safe and comfortable community.
