Walden, located in Mechanicsburg, PA was named one of the Best Neighborhoods in the Country, earning a 2013 Best in American Living Award sponsored by the National Association of Homebuilders. Walden was the best-selling neighborhood in Central PA in 2012 and 2013, selling over 157 homes.
The Best in American Living Awards (BALA) is the nation’s premier award program encouraging design excellence in the residential building industry. It spotlights the most creative and innovative projects throughout the country.
With over 64 acres of spaces dedicated for homeowners to enjoy, the neighborhood provides something for everyone. Tree lined walking trails lead to open picnic areas. Gathering places like the fire pit set the stage for friends. Neighbors can stroll through The Grove and jog on the miles of sidewalks and paths. Walden Woods provides a place to breathe easy adjacent to the 3 acre TerraPark™, the area’s first all-natural playground. The abundant amenities at Walden are just steps away from Walden Crossroads, which houses The Shops at Walden, a quaint collection of businesses inspired by the downtown streets of the many cherished villages of Central Pennsylvania.
Walden is the first new village built on Harrisburg’s West Shore in more than 100 years and recaptured the welcome simplicity of
local village life. A mix of details, amenities, design, and planning come together to create what Charter calls The Great American
Neighborhood®. As with all Charter neighborhoods, Walden delivers Charter’s promise to Live Some Place Special®.
