"Its lovely if you can afford it"

Nestled between Roxborough and Manayunk is yet another little neighborhood that is so cute it makes you want to rip your face off. It’s also so expensive most of us will probably never live there.

The predominantly white Dearnley Park residents are average when it comes to their income so they can afford the expensive rent and the pricey houses. In fact most of the residents own the houses they inhabit in Dearnley Park.
Not only is the neighborhood quaint, quiet and safe it’s also in a great location. If you live in Dearnley Park you are close to the wilderness of Wissahickon Valley Park. And you can play golf at any of the surrounding country/golf clubs. It’s no wonder the wealthier citizens choose to live in this general section of Philadelphia.

If you’re into small boutiques and coffee shops you can always venture over to the main retail areas of Manayunk, Dearnley Park is too small to have its own.

Having a car, which most of Dearnley Park’s resident do, is key to living in this area because it is so far from other parts of the city. But don’t fret if you a car is not in the budget because you spend too much money on rent public transportation is also available.
