All welcome on Forbidden Drive

Posted on: February 13, 2009

One of the great things about living and working in the Northwest Section of Philadelphia is the escape that Valley Green and Fairmount park provide. I keep myself somewhat sane and somewhat fit by going for a run through the park a few days a week. Forbidden Drive, as it winds through Fairmount Park, has to be one of the most picturesque spots in the city of Philadelphia to get exercise. Three or four days a week I’m down in the park getting my workout in and enjoying all the nature the park has to offer. Often on my runs, I meet past and present clients taking advantage of this great park.

This past week I had clients who were transferring in from out of state, after I showed them a number of houses throughout the Northwest (Chestnut Hill, Mt Airy. East Falls), I decided to take them to lunch at The Valley Green Inn which is located on Forbidden Drive in the Wissahickon. My clients were so impressed with the scenery and also the fact that all the surrounding neighborhoods had easy access into the park. They haven’t settled on a house yet but they surely know they want to be walking distance to the park and all its hidden treasures. They said regarding the park, “what a beautiful backyard it makes!”

Whether you are new to the area or have lived in the Northwest all your life, do yourself a favor,take advantage of this wonderful escape located right here in your own backyard…
