Springfield Township Reviews

3 reviews
I love growing up in Springfield. I feel that everyone in the area is connected in some way and everyone knows each other. As a community we support each other. Springfield is a very safe community. Id say the housing here is pretty nice, it is a very average suburb. Every individual in Springfield understands each other, I guess you could say it is a "delco thing" (delaware county.)

The one large company in this area closed down, causing many to lose their jobs. Since most businesses in the area are small or family-owned, many had a very hard time finding a new job, if they were able to find one at all.
They are mostly mom and pop shops which are great that they are able to provide for their families. But to get to any main retailer (Target, malls, etc.) I have to drive 20 -25 minutes to shop.
