If you are an Arden resident, you already know how fortunate we are to live in this "gem" of a community called "Arden on the Severn". If you're new to Arden, here you will find some great information to help acquaint and connect you with your community and your neighbors. With direct access to the beautiful Severn River, our many amenities make Arden on the Severn a much desired place to live and raise your family.

With four private neighborhood beaches and three boat ramps and docks to launch our boats and store our dinghies, there's no need to go anywhere else. Members can even reserve one of our four beaches for private events. Learn more below and by visiting the Arden Beaches, Inc. website.

In addition to our private beach amenities, we also have an amazing community center that we call "Town Hall" that can be reserved by community association members for private events, reunions, celebrations, and community organization, group, and club meetings. Read more about Town Hall and its history in our community.

You also have access to Arden Park and ball fields within walking distance for most homes in Arden. In addition to the park, there are several treasured trails throughout the woodland here in the footprint of our community. You'll find some trails behind the Arden Park and ball fields, as well as more trails between Sections 2 and 5. If you're into exploring, be sure to check them out.

LOOKING FOR A GOOD BOOK OR WANT TO SHARE ONE?

Just one example of how great Arden is can be contributed to the Arden Boomers Social Group responsible for initiating a Book Exchange in 2017 with the construction and installation of the first Arden "Free Library" located at the entrance of Tuefel Park on Waterview Drive inspired by the desire to offer books to everyone, including children, as a community lending library. Borrowing books is based on the honor system, "Take a Book, Leave a Book". The program has been such a success that additional libraries have been installed. Other locations can be found below.

John Vitello, who lives in Section 1, designed and constructed the box and was aided in the installation by Scott Stose who provided the means for a secure structure.

Other "Little Library" locations in the "Arden Community Book Exchange" are listed below. Be sure to visit one near you, and remember, "Take A Book; Leave A Book." Enjoy!

Arden Community Book Exchange Locations:

Section 1 - Tuefel Park & 944 Waterview Dr

Section 4 - 1032 Plum Creek Dr

Section 5 - Chinaberry Ln & Oakview (across from 1143 Oakview Dr)
