While metropolitan bala’s apartments near Kelly Drive offer convenience, they also provide a new way to look at the city. The road runs alongside the Schuylkill River, adding breathtaking views to your commute. It also cuts right through Fairmount Park, the city’s largest municipal park and a major destination for both residents and tourists alike. The park, which stretches onto both sides of the river, features more than 2,000 acres of historic parkland, dating back to the 1800s. A number of the city’s oldest historic sites sit within the park and are open for tours, and the park is also home to many public art displays and sculptures. Above all, it is used for recreation and exercise, with athletic fields and miles of trails winding throughout, many of which can be accessed conveniently from Kelly Drive. The drive itself is a haven for exercise, popular with runners, walkers and bikers, who can enjoy a riverside breeze as they work out. It also hosts the oldest collegiate bike race and many other events on the river that give city residents a taste of both nature and community. While many people assume that living near a big city means residents are surrounded by skyscrapers and sidewalks, apartments near Kelly Drive prove that city living means something different in Philadelphia.
In addition to its proximity near ample green space, metropolitan bala is convenient to shopping, dining, and a variety of cultural attractions as well, providing a perfect balance of convenience and comfort.
