Overview of Lansdowne

Located 6 miles southwest of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the town of Lansdowne is home to many people who rent and commute because the location is so convenient and close to the big city. This small-town community offers something for everyone with outdoor movies, winter activities and arts events of all kinds. Each year, the town raises money for special Independence Day activities featuring a parade, fireworks and other community events. Eleven parks and recreation areas are located in and around the town, which offer great options for hiking, biking and exploring the outdoors.

Living in Lansdowne

The town was named for the estate of the Lord of Lansdowne. Originally a train stop in the early 20th century, the town expanded and grew over the years. Wealthy people living in Philadelphia once came to town to vacation and escape the heat of the city during Victorian times. Many of those vacation homes and hotels were turned into apartments. Today, the area offers a small-town feel close to the big city with attractive neighborhoods and tree-lined streets. You'll find a variety of apartment options for rent in Lansdowne.

Adults between the ages of 24 and 45 account for about half the population, making the town a popular place to settle down and raise a young family. Residents enjoy the town farmer's market, art festivals, community theater, special parades during the holidays and great bargains to be found at neighborhood yard sales often held throughout the year.

An active community network offers support for seniors, who can enjoy free hot lunch during the week and take part in a number of classes and activities.

The town has a symphony and a folk club that offer live musical performances throughout the year.
