Muhlenberg Township Reviews

I moved to Muhlenberg Township before entering eighth grade. I have been living in Muhlenberg for about four years now. Muhlenberg seems like a small community. It is usually patrolled by police with very few entertaining things to do. There are multiple fast food restaurants that make a healthy lifestyle difficult. It does not seem as diverse as my previous place in Reading. The good points of Muhlenberg is that it is a safe neighborhood with a higher level of education. The school's staff are very helpful with problems at home and problems with academics. The top priority I would change is the entertainment. I believe there should be more opportunities for jobs and places to hang out for the teens at Muhlenberg. Muhlenberg helped me adapt to a new environment and it is very peaceful filled with polite neighbors.

It's a suburban mixed area, buildings are in good condition despite being comparatively old to other town in the U.S. The only things I wish that Muhlenberg had were more places for "Nightlife", however, I easily overlooked it by getting together with friends.
Quiet, friendly neighborhood . Township Authorities do a great job with seasonal cleanup of snow, leaves, etc. Plenty of community engagement opportunities.
