Hi! I am moving to Bucks County with a middle school child. Looking at Warminster and Doylestown. Do families with kids live in townhomes in the area? Where are best areas to live that may have kids that age? Does anyone know anything about Catholic schools and parishes in these areas? Soccer leagues? Boy Scout Troops? TIA!

What do you mean by townhomes? Like townhouse complexes or single family? Stay away from Warminster Heights aka Lacey Park, but that is a wart on an otherwise nice area.

I mean attached homes vs single family homes. My husband and I like the convenience of not having yardeirk or maintenance. However, our son is pretty isolated where we live now an we would like other children nearby.

Yeah I am not really sure if there are any decent townhouse complexes in that immediate area though I am sure there are. There are plenty of SF homes all around the area though that look perfectly nice, quiet and family oriented.

In the Warminster area there are Our Lady of Good Council, St John Bosco and Nativity parishes, as well as Arch Bishop Wood HS. All highly recommended.

Here are a couple things I can tell you:

1. We temporarily lived in Newtown Grant in Newtown Township in a townhouse while we were looking for a permanent home. Our kids loved it. We were on a cul-de-sac and every day after school, they just went outside and all the kids in the cul-de-sac were out there playing, so they always had something to do. 80% of Newtown Elementary is kids from Newtown Grant.

2. Youth soccer is HUGE in Bucks. There are soccer organizations everywhere, and they are always looking for kids at every level from in-house rec leagues to academy level travel teams. I don't specifically know about Doylestown, but there are two huge ones in the Newtown area - CRUSA/FC Bucks and Patriot FC that both have in-house leagues and multiple travel teams at every age. I assume there are similar associations in Doylestown and Warminster, too. My son plays for CRUSA, and we've played away matches against multiple teams at fields in the Doylestown Central Park system.

3. Archbishop Wood is the primary Catholic high school in the area in Warminster. Holy Ghost is in lower Bucks in Bensalem. Both are very highly regarded. I don't know about middle schools.
