Lansdowne is an amazing community, and we're getting better every year! We are offering more events in the community, have recently opened an outdoor community gathering space (the Lansdowne Landing), and are seeing more restaurants and cafes coming to town. The commute to the city and surrounding suburbs can't be beat. We love living here, and love the friendly and welcoming people who call this town home!

What I like about Lansdowne the most, no, what I love about Lansdowne the most, is its welcoming environment, loving community, and diverse neighborhoods. I've spent my entire life in Lansdowne, and the borough I've grown up in has played a large role in my growth as an individual. I have experienced memorable connections, long-lasting relationships, and genuine warm-heartedness. This town has deeply impacted my heart! With all of that said, what I'd like to see change would be the education system. Many schools in the area lack the materials and resources required for a student to excel. However, if the area makes a few slight changes, Lansdowne has immense potential, and with enough perseverance to success, this community will thrive.
I enjoy living in Lansdowne. The area is quiet and the neighbors are friendly. There are several modes of transportation available so getting to and from the city is fairly easy. There are also some great local eateries that I would advise many to try such as Kia's Cakes, The Icery, and Colonial Kitchen.
