Llewellyn Park is unique in that it combines wooded country living with an easy 12 mile commute to New York City and only 5 miles from Newark International Airport. The Park also offers close proximity to attractions such as the Montclair Art Museum and Newark Museum, restaurants from the 5 star High Lawn Pavilion to bistros in Montclair, South Orange and Maplewood, the New Jersey Performing Arts Center, Newark’s Prudential Center, many top notch golf courses, horseback riding, sports facilities for ice hockey, soccer, and tennis to name but a few. It is close to several world-class malls featuring designer stores.
Seen on a map, Llewellyn Park is a green island. Haskell’s dream of a country Utopia is surrounded by development yet remains a sanctuary from urban sprawl. Since its beginning in 1857, the park has been home to many residents with familiar names – Colgate, Merck, Chubb, Stetson, and Thomas Edison, whose home Glenmont is a national historical park. Many of Llewellyn Park’s homes were designed by prominent American architects including Alexander Jackson Davis, Calvert Vaux, Charles McKim, Stanford White, and Robert A.M. Stern. The Park has always been a refuge for those who value their privacy.
Park residents feel a kinship, a bond with each other that has formed a community. Inside the Park, you will find friendly neighbors, winding roads, streams and ponds, majestic trees and a variety of flora. Llewellyn Park was the first gated community in America, but you will find a friendly, diverse group of people from all backgrounds and ages, from young families with children, to retirees who were born in the park, to celebrities who like the peace and security. Parents consider Llewellyn Park a paradise for their children, where they can play in safety and explore the forests and streams.
