Melrose Park is a beautiful neighborhood within Cheltenham Township, just north of the City of Philadelphia. The area has beautiful homes, excellent schools, and (best of all!) friendly neighbors.

To see just a few of the lovely sights that will greet your eyes on a walk around our neighborhood, be sure to click on Melrose park Photos below.

Over the past year or so, neighbors have been gathering to explore ways of making life in our area even more rewarding. This has been done through meetings of the Melrose Park Neighbors Association. Over the course of several meetings, our interests have broadened. This is reflected in the list below.


We're able to take on as many activities as we have people and energy for. So far, that's quite a lot! Flowers have been hung at Melrose Park Train Station, and the water of Mill Run has become somewhat cleaner. The SEPTA station is undergoing a full rehab. Those items have great stories behind them.

So explore our site, see the nature photos, check out our cool History section (be sure to click on the "here" link), and come to our next meeting! Signing up for our e-mail notifications is the best way of staying informed.


Board of Directors
