Overall I really enjoy O'Hara Township. It is a great place to raise a family and has great schools. It is a very safe community that has a nice park for community members to use. One downfall is that it is pretty expensive. I would recommend living in O'Hara Township to any one.

I love where I live. My parents grew up here and went to the same high school as me. Its very beautiful, clean and safe. Very close knit community. Lots of hard-working professionals live here and raise their kids to have good values and great work ethics. just very wholesome, overall. I plan to live here when Im done with school.
I live in a nice, close-nit community. There really isn't any crime to be heard of. Some people drive fast on my road and with the hills that kind of scares me. My older brother was actually clipped by a driver and she actually kept driving without even slowing down. Although that was over 10 years ago, and that was the only time something like that happened. We have a lot of elderly people and middle aged people with grown children so there aren't many young adults or children. There isn't any drinking, drug use or any other activities of the sort. I see police making rounds all the time and they all seem very nice and I've never seen them stop anywhere other than the park where they take their breaks. Overall I would say that the crime in my area is low and safety is high.
