Moving to Town

Considering looking for rental properties in Glenolden, PA? You can find a plethora of them, including all utilities paid units, rental condos, or places to live in like single family homes. While the community is physically small, it has a lot to recommend it on its tree-lined streets. Public transit makes accessibility throughout the borough and into Philadelphia relatively easy, whether or not you have a car. A spacious public park and community celebrations such as for the 4th of July keep residents entertained. Several shopping centers, a bevy of restaurants, and the nearby Delaware River make this one attractive community.

How to Find Your New Home

You'll need to allow at least thirty days to find the property of your dreams here. Vacancies are low, and properties are coveted enough that they can go quickly. Check out complexes like Glen Manor and Glen Brook for availabilities. Look around the community yourself; at only a mile in circumference, you should be able to explore it thoroughly. Online resources, as well as area newspapers like the Philadelphia Inquirer also offer opportunities to find rentals.You can look for a home here any time of year, although with four full seasons, winters can be a bit snowy. Spring and fall are pleasant and mild, with summer warm and humid.

Get in Tune with your Landlord When you do find the right spot, make sure you're right for your landlord -- have your credit report, rental history, and work information handy, along with a current ID and the ability to access bank statements and W2s so you can prove you are who you say you are!

Neighborhoods in Glenolden

Throughout Glenolden, there are various neighborhoods that offer up a variety of different living situations and amenities.

Glenolden Borough Center: Just like it sounds, this urban in density neighborhood is right in the center of things -- just off Chester Pike. With real estate possibilities including apartment complexes and small to medium sized single family homes, most housing is older, built from 1940 to 1969. Some historic properties, built prior to 1940, are also a part of the landscape here. Glenolden Park is located here, and Folcroft Shopping Center is nearby. Residents love the pleasures of the park's capacious green space, and you will too, for walking, community events, and playgrounds for the kids.

Macdade Blvd / W South Ave: Also urban in density, this is the tree-lined neighborhood that includes McDade Mall Shopping Center for all your shop 'til you drop needs. Muckinipattis Creek runs through this community, making for pleasant strolls and a myriad of bird watching potential. And what about the housing? Built primarily between 1940 and 1969, you'll find town homes and single family homes that are mostly small to medium sized.

Rively Ave / Pine St: This urban part of Glenolden consists of medium sized townhomes and many apartment complexes. Properties were built anywhere from 1940 to 1999, and while there are more owners here than renters, you'll find a mix of both.

Life in Glenolden

This is a friendly community that holds its own large scale Fourth of July celebration replete with parade and fireworks every year. Pretty Glenolden Park plays host to resident hawks as well as walkers, bikers, picnickers, and playing fields. There's a senior center and active Boy Scout and Girl Scout troops.

Good Eats and Fun Times

From Dave's Pizza and steak subs, to the elegant intimacy of a restaurant like The Gas Light with seafood and pasta on the menu, there are plenty of dining options in town. Falones, one of the few late night spots in Glenolden, gets high marks for pizza and beer, reasonably priced. You'll also find shopping from Walmart to Walgreens, but take that short drive into Philadelphia to explore boutique shops, museums like the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and to get a good look at the Liberty Bell, up-close and personal.

Small Town, Big City

Living in Glenolden, you get the best of both worlds: city amenities and a small town community where the oldest house in the borough still stands, the stone Casper Hahn farm house, circa 1818, at Chester Pike and Cooke Avenue. Meanwhile, modern shopping malls, and convenient access to Philadelphia and Chester PA via public transportation and major highways means culture and entertainment options abound. After all, Philadelphia contains some fifty art museums, and the famous museum steps -- at the art museum -- which Rocky Balboa once trod. Science buffs will love the Franklin Institute, named for Ben Franklin of course. And of course, Philadelphia is a prime spot for US history buffs to enjoy. Living in Glenolden, you'll be just a quick drive away from Independence National Historical park, including Independence Hall where the Declaration of Independence was signed. Check out Betsy Ross' house too, where she made the flag America flies today.

While you probably won't be making any new nation-defining flags in your Glenolden abode, you can count on a comfortable place to live where trees shade the homes, and history is respected, as well as a community with plenty of spirit.

Nature Calls

Nearby Ridley Creek State Park offers plenty of opportunities to express your nature loving spirit, whether through photographing the streams, hills, and trees, walking or hiking through the area, or wading in Ridley Creek itself. The park has over 2,606 acres that showcase Delaware County woodlands and meadows. There are pretty waterfalls to see, horseback riding trails and biking trails too, so get your hiking boots on and get ready to explore this nearby natural bounty. The John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge is also near by, a delight for nature lovers and photographers.
