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


May 13, 2018
12:00pm - 3:00pm

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.

Parking for the Stroll About and Mother’s Day Tea events is available only at a nearby Villanova University parking garage. Park and walk one block east on Spring Mill Road, to the intersection with County Line Road. Cross as directed, and enter through the corner gate. The SEPTA Villanova Train Station is a short walk to/from Stoneleigh.

The Stoneleigh parking lot, located at 1829 County Line Road, will be open for handicapped parking only during this special event.

  • Dress comfortably for casual strolling on paved, graded paths.
  • Cameras and binoculars welcome!
  • Professional photographers: click here for more information about our photography program.
