Activities abound wherever you go


Find yourself surrounded by acres of rolling hills, wooded trails, green meadows, vegetable and flower gardens, inviting patios, country farm homes and tranquil water features. Relax your summer days by the outdoor pool, putting greens, and tennis and croquet courts. Walking and hiking trails, as well as paved pathways, surround and connect Kendal and Crosslands. Take a stroll through the Arboretum.  On over 500 acres in the heart of the Brandywine Valley, you will live in an oasis of historic countryside yet be close to the cultural metropolitan life just outside our door.  And let’s not forget our ‘furry friends’ – – the newly formed Kendal Dog Park is abound with wagging tails.
