Bala Cynwyd, PA (Montgomery County)
Bala Cynwyd is a collection of neighborhoods located in the southeast corner of the Lower Merion township. The exotic name indicates the rich Welsh history and culture that the community has been steeped within since Welsh colonists first settled there in 1682. A fiercely proud neighborhood association has been built up around Bala Cynwyd. They officially meet every month or so, fielding concerns and announcing recent changes around the area. The purpose of the neighborhood association is to preserve the area’s rich history and values while promoting civic welfare and a community spirit. Bala Cynwyd is best described as an affluent, highly-professional community. 96 percent of the area’s workforce holds white-collar jobs with specializations in management, sales and technology. The vast majority of Bala Cynwyd residents thus hold a four year college degree or higher. Most of these workers can enjoy a commute on public transit thanks to the nearby SEPTA rail station that travels directly into the heart of Philadelphia. Young families can also enjoy Bala Cynwyd’s location within the stellar Lower Merion school district. The area is also adjacent to many high-quality private schools, such as the modern Jewish Orthodox Koholet Yeshiva High School, the Catholic Merion Mercy and Waldron Mercy academies as well as the French International School of Philadelphia.
