Welcome to Swarthmore. Our community is small and diverse, full of many things to do and experience. Here are a few small ideas of ways to spend your day:
Visit Downtown Swarthmore and take a look at our unique shops and service businesses or have a bite to eat at one of our great restaurants.
Buy something delicious at the Farmers Market Saturdays between 9:30 am and 1:30 pm. It is open May through the first week in December and is located in the Municipal parking lot at the corner of Park and Dartmouth Avenues.
Stroll along our beautiful streets. Swarthmore has been named a "Tree City USA ” for the past 30 years and is full of mature trees which line our streets- every season of the year it is a pleasant way to pass the day.
Pick up a copy of the Swarthmore Historic Walking Tour at either the Library or the Borough Administration Office. It's a fastinating look at some of Swarthmore's most interesting houses.
Stop by Little Crum Creek Park and view our newly restored wetland. You’ll see many native plant species and see nature at work.
Visit the Scott Arboretum located on the grounds of Swarthmore College.
Knock on the door to the Fire House and take a look at one of our restored antique fire engines.
View an art exhibit in Borough Hall. Swarthmore Friends of the Arts updates the exhibits every other month- stop by and see what is new.
Also in Borough Hall, on the upper level there are two walls full of historical Swarthmore photos.
