The award showcases Arden’s innovation in creating a modern, healthy and active lifestyle for its residents. The recognition further highlights Arden’s commitment to offering the best in world-class indoor and outdoor amenities.

“It is an unmistakable honor for Arden to be awarded the 2020 NAHB Gold Award for ‘Best Amenity’ at the Nationals,” said Andrew Smith, division president of Freehold Communities. “This award recognizes that Arden combines the wonders of nature with the joys of healthy living to create a community that is unlike any other nationwide.”

Additionally, with 20 miles of carefully mapped and landscaped scenic walking, hiking and biking trails, residents can fish, canoe and kayak around beautiful Arden Lake. Arden’s Lakehouse is another unforgettable center of activity with its two resort-style pools, private cabanas, interactive splash pad, spa and waterfalls.
