Stoneleigh: A Natural Garden
1829 East County Line Road
Villanova , PA 19085


March 26, 2023
3:00pm - 7:00pm

For nearly 80 years, Stoneleigh was the home of the Haas family, which donated the property to Natural Lands in 2016 so that it would remain preserved forever.

The property includes stately trees, winding pathways, and lush gardens that were designed by a number of notable landscape architects over the past century—including the Olmsted Brothers, sons of the famed Frederick Law Olmsted.

Our Commitment to Keeping You Safe:

This in-person gathering will take place both indoors and outside. Please dress for the weather and wear comfortable shoes for traversing paved and stone paths.

We will be adhering to CDC and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania COVID-19 safety guidelines.

If you are not feeling well, we ask that you refrain from attending this event. We are happy to reschedule a private or virtual visit with you at another time. We love to have a reason to visit the garden!
