I'm 22 years old and lived here my entire life. A quick half hour drive into Philadelphia. York Road runs right into Broad street. The Willow grove mall has some good stores including Macy's, Bloomingdale's, JC Penny, Apple, Pandora, Michael Kohrs, etc. The train station is very convenient as well. Nice neighborhoods with beautiful homes and nice friendly people. Has a nice selection of food stores and is right near the turnpike for easy access to wherever you want to go,

Willow Grove is an absolutely amazing neighborhood. We have a fantastic neighborhood, the restaurants are great, the mall is a great hangout spot, and the school (Upper Moreland) has offered me an amazing education over the past 13 years.
There are a lot of things changing around the area. One negative in my opinion is that it is becoming over run by the automotive industry. For example, they just knocked down a popular bowling alley that was great for night life, family events as well as after school programs. In its spot is an automotive collision center which is now being built.
