I've lived in Willow Grove my whole life, and it's honestly a very nice little town. There isn't much to do other than go to the Willow Grove Mall, so I'd like to see that change. A movie theater or even a bowling alley would make Willow Grove so much more exciting!

Willow Grove is a beautiful community filled with my lifetime friends. It has many trails to run or walk through with your animal. The area is very safe, I have not had one bad occurrence.
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,
