The polo grounds are among the marquee attractions at Glen Farm, a property first settled in 1638, now sprawling with acres of trails and meadows. Majestic 130-year-old linden trees flank the main entrance drive forming a quiet canopy known as Linden Lane. Other notable attractions on the site to explore are the Pavilion and the Glen Farm Stables and Equestrian Center.


Don’t forget to bring your own picnic, lawn chair and blanket!
