Pike Township is a nice area. I really like the schools and the programs that they offer for children. We have visited the library in the area and it's nice. The parks in the area are very nice and clean. I feel the area is clean and somewhat safe. There's a good variety of stores for everyday needs. Also, there's different restaurants for all to enjoy. Traffic is sometimes heavy, especially on weekends and during rush hours. There is easy access to I-65 and 465, so traveling to and from this area is easy. Overall, my experience in this area is good and would recommend for families looking for nice neighborhoods.

Pike Township is a small town feel inside the beltway! Pike truly is a community that is engaged in building a better tomorrow.
I came to pike township from a small town in southern Indiana. This has been a huge improvement for me. The Schools have been wonderful. Pike offers a wide range of AP classes and even a EMT and Barbershop certification class. Teachers have been supportive and will communicate with parents as well. Neighbors have always been friendly and fairly quiet. Some roads do need work in the area so drive safely but the pros outweigh the cons.
