"BEST place to grow up! Great for growing families and retirees!!! :-)"

I moved to Constitution Hill when I was 7 years old, in a small house on a large block of land with LOTS to run around on. 10 years later, I wouldn't have known it then, but it truly helped shaped myself and my sister into the knowledgeable and well-rounded people we are today. So so SO thankful to have grown up here. Walking up and down Constitution Road is fantastic, the houses are incredible with superb city views!!!

Constitution Hill, is a beautiful, quiet, friendly suburb, where the lawns are always well-maintained, people are always smiling and you can walk out at night and still feel safe. Its the ideal, cinema-like "picture perfect neighbourhood" - neighbours are kind and willing to help, you can make friends with just about anybody here! It is not a noisy suburb, people here are very relaxed, chilled, open with good positive energy!!!

While it does not have a train station, it makes up for in the "T-Way" and "711" Bus Routes - but, this can be annoying + time-consuming, especially if travelling to the city (perks of living in a quaint suburb). Parramatta is close + easily accessible. Growing up, my family and I always went walking, running or bike riding! Its also a perfect place for picnics and pets, lots of parks! The local library, bakery, very small medical centre and pharmacist are great too! Wentworthville or Toongabbie is a close 5min drive away for groceries/restaurants.

Culturally, it's nice - mix of everyone and a bunch of interesting cultures! Toongabbie Primary School was great with many kids of different backgrounds - a wonderful way to build kind ethics, cultural understanding and good morals for young children. Wentworthville Primary is also good! High Schools - do not send your kids to Pendle Hill High - but consider the selective schools nearby or the reputable schools like Parramatta High, Macarthur Girls High, Concord High, Strathfield South High, Strathfield Girls High.

Constitution Hill, truly is a lovely place to live and grow up in. Its safe, quiet and people are polite! Picturesque neighbourhood! It's not amazing in terms of public transport + food/groceries, but you'll be living with ease because you are AWAY from the busy roads, loud noises, traffic etc. Sadly, I left this suburb in 2015 because we began a new chapter, but it has a very special spot in my heart. Kids and family friendly place, perfect childhood memories especially during the summer holidays :-)

"A small suburb so far yet so close to everything"

I have lived here for 17 years. It used to be part of Wentworthville until 2005 when it became its own suburb. The area is extremely quiet but yet have its own library, newsagent, chinese take away, bakery and beer shop. There is no train station within walking distance but you have 2 options for public transport. One is the T-way bus which takes you to Westmead hospital in 5 minutes, Parramatta in 10 minutes or the city in 50 minutes, while the other option is to drive 5 minutes and park your car at Wentworthville train station.

The presentation of the neighborhood is top notch where you will see tidy lawns and renovated houses in certain locations. Neighbours are also quite friendly. The median age group is probably above 50 so you won't get noisy teenagers.

I don't think there is a very good public school nearby but that didn't worry me because there are lots of top selective schools around.

Best street in Constitution Hill is Constitution Rd, where most houses have views of the Sydney CBD.
