People & Lifestyle

This affluent area offers a classic suburban aesthetic. Most residents own their homes and are involved with the community in some way. The city houses families and retirees alike, all of whom are attracted to the peaceful environment and clean, well-kept nature of the small town. The public schools are some of the best around, and residents love the family-friendly nature of the area.


Many Gwynedd Valley locals enjoy the convenience of hopping on the commuter rail train for a quick ride into Philadelphia’s Center City. However, you don’t need to leave town for an exciting excursion—there are plenty of more low-key attractions right in Gwynedd Valley. 

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

Gwynedd Valley has both casual and fine dining establishments to satisfy any craving. The intimate Bocelli Italian Restaurant is dedicated to authentic Italian fare, serving a creative variety of pasta options. The casual, cozy ambiance in the charming Gwynedd Valley train station location is unbeatable. 


William Penn Inn is a local favorite for its upscale American-Continental food and distinct, elegant dining rooms. Many enjoy Sunday brunch and dinner (try the tangerine-glazed salmon or balsamic-seared sea scallops) inside the pristine white walls of the inn, which was built in 1714. 


If you’re into golf, take a swing at the Cedar Brook Country Club before enjoying a delicious meal overlooking the course. Entrees include excellent seafood options such as ahi tuna and salmon as well as steaks and pork chops.


In terms of shopping, residents often stop at the nearby Gwynedd Crossing Shopping Center or Montgomery Mall, where you can find everything from trendy clothing to sporting goods. Hop on a train at Gwynedd Valley Station and head into the city for even more delicious restaurants, cafes, and shopping complexes. 

Things to Do

Pike Fest is one of the largest annual events in town, as the community gathers once a year for a day of family fun. Participate in the 5K, enjoy food and drinks, and support local businesses by visiting various vendors. Gwynedd Mercy Academy Golf Classic is another event in which locals love to participate or cheer on loved ones. 


For seasonal fun, make sure to attend the Annual Easter Egg Hunt at Penllyn Woods. The Summer Concert Series is a huge hit on Wednesday nights throughout the summer when neighbors come out to dance and enjoy music in Oxford Park. For year-round activities, head to Penllyn Woods to enjoy outdoor recreation on the sports fields, take a stroll, run on the trails, go for a bike ride, or have a family picnic.
