If you're looking for a small town, "village" atmosphere with access to all the cultural, historic and recreational experiences of a large city, consider the quaint community of Chestnut Hill, a neighborhood of Philadelphia.
A strong sense of community pride, a charming historic shopping area with cobblestone streets and an old-fashioned sense of caring about friends and neighbors make Chestnut Hill a very special place to work and live.
The Philadelphia Inquirer has highlighted Chestnut Hill as an "ideal place to live." Former police commissioner John Timoney was quoted as saying Chestnut Hill is "as safe as any neighborhood you're going to find in the country."
Recreation, Culture and Entertainment
Nestled in the northwest corner of Philadelphia, a few blocks from the Montgomery County line, this attractive area offers ready access to the Pocono mountains and New Jersey beaches.
Chestnut Hill is a short distance from center city Philadelphia where you will find fine dining, a nationally renowned orchestra, world-class museums and professional theaters and sports teams. Recreational and sporting activities abound. Rowing on the Schuylkill River, mountain biking along the Wissahickon Creek and strolling in Fairmount Park are some of the many activities our residents enjoy.
The Best of Both Worlds
This unique community offers residents the best of both worlds - a lovely, suburban environment within an exciting major metropolitan area.
