What We Like:
Broadlands was developed with the outdoors in mind, and it shows in the community spirit as well as the way the homes are sited on the land. The whole neighborhood flows around Stream Valley Park, which is 150 acres of trails, wetlands, and wildlife preserves. The pride of the community is the Broadlands Nature Center , a 5,000 square foot complex with animals, programs, and events that include a children’s nature program. Broadlands was even named a Certified Wildlife Habitat Community by the National Wildlife Federation, one of only 25 across the nation.
The community spirit is vibrant, with a calendar full of activities for all age groups. The summer outdoor movie program, Flicks in the Sticks, brings everyone out on weekend evenings with lawn chairs, blankets, and picnic dinners. The Broadlands Live outdoor concerts have been going on for 16 years in the summer and feature local bands. The neighborhood also supports numerous outreach programs; recent events have included a sneaker drive, a clothing donation effort, and a fundraiser for Mobile Hope.
