The neighborhood is very clean and safe. It feels very welcoming whenever driving through the neighborhood. The township park is huge with a brand new pool. It includes a variety of activities like tennis courts, basketball courts, two baseball fields, two playgrounds, and a decently sized activity building. The library and police station are linked and right near the park. The roads are also paved well and are removed of snow/salted in the winter.

We love our nice quiet neighborhood. The township has a beautiful park as well as multiple play grounds for the kids. Our borough does an excellent job of keeping our roads clean in the winter. We are close to everything, I always joke we ate 15 mins from everywhere,
Pittsburgh is a beautiful city full of opportunity and possibility. There is so much to do here from the Strip District to the South Side, culture and life is abundant throughout. With multiple colleges nestled within the city and its close neighbor, Oakland, there are many students graduating in search of jobs and Pittsburgh has become a prime location for new adults. This welcoming city has so much to offer.
