Hi Faith, Bob is correct below. Okehocking is listed as the Malvern winner above. It's in Willistown Township, but has a Newtown Square address. Definitely a great place to take a hike—check out some of our photos of the preserve: http://patch.com/L-rc2P.

Roz—correct! But the Ardmore-Merion-Wynnewood Patch covers the communities of Ardmore, Merion, Wynnewood, Penn Wynne and Haverford, so it is within our coverage area... it's just faster to say Ardmore Patch.

Scott Arboretum, entrance and parking, at Swarthmore College, Chester Road; is lovely in all seasons. The amphitheater, trails should be visited; trees and plants are labeled; an Alexander Calder piece and Abracadabra are on the grounds; lush rose garden.
