Ross Township, in my opinion, is by far one of the best places to live in the Pittsburgh Area. There are several amenities nearby. The renovated Block at Northway is home to stores such as Saks off Fifth, Nordstrom Rack and the container store. A short distance into neighboring McCandless Township is the McCandless Crossing Shopping Center. There you will find many dining options; among them Bonefish Grill, Hello Bistro, and BJ's Brewhouse. A Cinemark Movie Theatre, and various other shopping options are also available. The city is only a 20-minute drive where you can see a show in the cultural district or attend a game of one of Pittsburgh’s sports teams. If you wish to get away from the hustle and bustle, the township is home to over 10 community parks and is a short distance to the 3,075 acre North Park, where you can go hiking, biking, canoeing, hit the batting cages or enjoy a game of tennis. Anything you could think of…You can find it near Ross Township!

I have grown up in Ross Township, I have attended high school at North Hills Senior High School, and I cannot be happier to live here. Ross Township is my home, and I believe that it is the best place in Allegheny country to live. Pittsburgh is less than 5 miles away, the public school is fantastic, and it is a very child-friendly, safe environment for families.
Close enough to Pittsburgh to easily travel into the city, but far enough away to get away. Great schools offer a great education Through the North Hills School District. Lots of community event to spend time with family and friends.
