3 Spots for Great Fall Foliage

October 26, 2018

The suburbs surrounding the nation’s fifth-largest city may not come to mind when you’re thinking about spots to find beautiful fall foliage—but Chester County is brimming with lush and leafy areas whose colors come to life as soon as autumn hits. From expansive parks to local squares and everything in between, you don’t have to travel far from your Chestnut Square apartment to be surrounded by reds, golds, greens and every other shade under the fall sun.


Fall foliage can provide the perfect backdrop for a weekend picnic with your sweetheart, a heart-pumping jog or a casual stroll by yourself to recharge after work. No matter what you’re looking for from nature, here are the best spots near your Chestnut Square apartment to find it:


Marshall Square Park: Three blocks from your Chestnut Square apartment, Marshall Square Park brings together the local community throughout the year, including in the fall. Stop by the park for a cool stroll where you can spy some fall foliage and check back frequently for local events, such as music festivals, cleanup gatherings and more.


Hoopes Park: If you have little ones in your life, Hoopes Park, 1.5 miles from your Chestnut Square apartment, is a definite fall must-see. The 16-acre park, surrounded by canopies of trees, provides play equipment, picnic tables and sports fields, perfect for whiling away a beautiful fall day.


West Goshen Community Park: About two miles from your Chestnut Square apartment, West Goshen Community Park features lots for locals to see and do this fall. Stop by to get some cardio in at the volleyball, basketball and tennis courts or hit the running trail, where you can get a firsthand look at the local fall foliage. The park also hosts frequent community gatherings, such as concerts and festivals.
