I could not possibly choose just one thing to like about Roxborough. There are so many things to like! Every single person here is so friendly and very welcoming. The location is great because we are a 15 minute drive from the city and there are many local shops that are in walking range. The schools here are great as well. There are a good selection of public, private and catholic schools. The place is very family oriented and we have many parks and recreational facilities for family’s to go to and be a part of. Philadelphia is also the home of the super bowl champs everyone would love to live here. Go Birds !

Roxborough is a safe, beautiful and very friendly community in the Philadelphia area. There is so much to do here. From walks on Main Street to catching a movie at the United Artist Theatre, everything is close by and easily accessible. Walking and biking always in option in the community because nothing is too far and there are no worries about getting hurt because Roxborough is a very safe part of the city. Also, although the diversity isn't all the way there, I do see it progressing and becoming better day by day.
Since I move here I like the community because is not like the one I came from, it was full of violence and drugs. Cop always around and helicopters, and since I move to Roxborough it been so different no violence and the cops are not always in the community. Here I could walk freely without having to be watching my back and I enjoy walking around the neighborhood and seeing the scenery. We also have everything near bye. Roxborough is the safest place I have live in since I move to Philadelphia and I am happy that I was able to move here.
