Bala Cynwyd is a small, but lovely community in the state of Pennsylvania, located in Lower Merion Township and beloning to the Main Line region. Bala Cynwyd originally comprised two separate towns, as the name suggests: Bala and Cynwyd. Then, a single US Post office was established, so the cities have united into one single town, Bala Cynwyd. The area in which Bala Cynwyd was settled dates back to the 1689s.
Now, Bala Cynwyd has grown to be a residential area, where people can raise their children in peace, or can spend a lovely holiday, far away from the noise and fuss in the big, industrialized cities. Bala Cynwyd also 'starred' in a couple of famous movies, including To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar, and Unbreakable. Some of the most notable residents of Bala Cynwyd are Hobey Baker, Bob Garfield, Skip James and Mirah.
The Bryn Mawr's Ludington Memorial Library is the central library of the Lower Merion Library System, together with 5 other branches. There are more than 1.4 million items available for the residents of Bala Cynwyd, but for the tourists as well, so the system provides endless reading options for anybody who is passionate about this activity.
Golf Zone is one of the greatest recreational facilities in Bala Cynwyd. Since its establishment, in 2004, Golf Zone provides both tourists and residents with many fun activities. Golf passionates will love this place, because it has an excellent golf course, but those who do not know how to play this sport, nor are they willing to learn, also have many fun options. The place allows for mini golf, carting, paint-ball and arcades, and it has many dining options as well. It is clear that everyone will have a great time here.
The Lower Merion Historical Society has finally been established in Bala Cynwyd, after several relocations. This museum is perfect if you want to learn more about the history, culture and traditions of the place.
