Lower Burrell is a small, but powerful community. It is very welcoming and involved in many different events/ activities that may be held within it or around the area. The education in this area is wonderful. However, there is not much to do in the area for children.

I did not grow up in Lower Burrell. My husband did and always talks about how much he loved his childhood and his school days. The city of Lower Burrell has community get togethers to get the public involved. The high school is always hosting events for the school age children and at Christmas time they do a light up night with a lighting of a Christmas tree. The high school also has a childhood development class where kids ages 3-4 can go spend time with high schoolers for 2 hours and do story time. I grew up in a community that did not have these events and I always wanted my kids to grow up with the memories my husband had as a kid. We currently moved into our home in Lower Burrell and I am excited for my children to experience the community and all it has to offer.
I love that lower burrell pa is a decent place to live and spend time in. There is a mall nearby, there's plenty of access to outdoor activities, the people are generally very friendly. I also love that burrell has a home-town feel to it, even if it isn't your hometown, and many people who grown up in this beautiful small town stay in the area their whole lives.
