I lived here since I was 6 I'm now 21 and feel like I have no ties to the area. Not a lot goes on around here, the "downtown" is just a string of not really interesting stores on both side of a street, and there's not really anywhere cool or popular to hang out. It is safe from my perspective,(I'm a guy) I bike and run at night and have had no moment where I've been afraid because of the area. the school system is pretty average there are usually a couple of kids going to ivy league and others who don't go to college. the county high schools are better academically and you need to test in while in middle school and they provide bussing so it's not hard to do, but is hard to do high school sports if you go there.

Springfield Township is a nice quiet area with a plethora of activities and dining options; from local businesses, to chain restaurants, Springfield offers the best of itself to those that are looking to spend the day or to move in and become one of its residents.
better public schools and a better downtown area with better nightlife. Also, using the money of taxes more wisely. For example, we get a lot of money from Baltusrol golf club, and we used to buy a turf field and new tennis courts for the school even though we need more stores for people and better roads in some areas. Some of the things out town buys just makes absolutely no sense to me.
