Located in the northwestern corner of Allegheny County in the north hills of Pittsburgh, among the picturesque hillsides that encompass developments of all kinds, sits the community of Franklin Park.

This one time, heavy rural community is now known for its access to two major highways, 79 and 279, providing easy access to downtown, and homes of all sizes.

Throughout most of its history, Franklin Park moved at its own unhurried pace except throughout the late 1800 and early 1900s, when the area had a thriving oil and gas industry.

By the end of the Great Depression, however, farming declined as a livelihood because men were taking better paying jobs in the mills of Pittsburgh.

Today, Franklin Park is a haven for people who want to live in a suburban paradise. With homes built on tree lined streets and finely manicured lots.

And that’s not all. The Franklin Township School District along with its counterparts in Marshall, Bradford Woods, McCandless and Pine joined are a part of the highly regarded North Allegheny School District.

Today that school district is considered one of the best in western Pennsylvania and residents are very proud to be a part of it.

So if you are looking for suburban living, with easy access to downtown, and well regarded schools, then Franklin Park might be the place for you.
