Springfield Commons

“A Neighborhood for Everyone”

Nestled at the foot of Tussey Mountain, Springfield Commons offers you the opportunity for building and living in a community with a friendly, hometown atmosphere. Springfield
Commons is just a 5-minute walk from the historic Boalsburg, and 10-15 minute drive to The Pennsylvania State University and downtown State College.

Springfield Commons was designed to be a Traditional Neighborhood to complement the historic character of Boalsburg. Recognized as the birth place of Memorial Day, the village of Boalsburg dates back to before the revolutionary war.  The main area of the village, known as the “Diamond in Boalsburg,” is surrounded by small shops and the historic restaurant “Duffy’s Tavern,” and was once a stage coach stop.

Springfield Commons has a mix of housing designs including single-family detached Village homes and Carriage Homes (duplexes) to catch the eye of families, empty nesters, and retirees. To maintain the character and integrity of the community, NO two homes will look the same from the street!

The homes will all have front porches, will sit close to the street, and will be clustered together to encourage interaction between neighbors as they walk by on the community sidewalks.

A few of the many features offered at Springfield Commons
  • A Community Center serves as a gathering place where residents meet and have social functions. Residents have the right to reserve the Community Center for weddings receptions, birthday parties, family reunions, etc. Within the Community Center, there are meeting rooms, fitness center, and a complete kitchen available for residents use.
  • The Homeowner’s Association provides lawn care, snow removal from all private driveways and sidewalks, and maintenance to all common areas and the community center. In addition, the monthly homeowner fee includes; internet, sewer service and maintenance of the community center.
  • All homes will have high quality construction and Energy Star Certification is available.
  • CATA bus services are available from the Torrey Lane, next to the development. County van service is available for seniors.
  • While sitting on your porch, or taking a stroll through the neighborhood, enjoy the visions of wildlife that strolls through the open space in Springfield Commons. During winter months, feed the birds from you back deck while anxiously anticipating the arrival of spring!
  • Choose your own floor plans and builder.
  • For the family with young children, there is a tot lot in the community to take your children to play.
  • With only a limited number of units being built in the development, residents have the opportunity to get to know their neighbors and to become a close knit community that watches out for each other. When raising your family or having your elderly parents retire to a community where everyone knows everyone else, this gives you an added peace of mind, knowing that there is always someone looking over them, an added sense of security when you cannot always be there.

The location of Springfield Commons offers a wide array of entertainment possibilities!
Some of these include:
  • Tussey Mountain, offers a variety of activities in both summer and winter months. During the summer you won’t want to miss the Tussey Mountain “Wingfest” or the State College Brew Expo located at the top of Tussey Mountain with food, live music and over 50 brewers; during winter months get out there and enjoy skiing, sledding and don’t forget tubing down the mountain. All of which is sure to put a smile on the faces of both young and old!
  • Ag Progress Days is Pennsylvania’s biggest agricultural expo, and it is right here in our backyard. Featuring the latest in agricultural, technology and research, great foods, and lots of mighty machines, there is certain to be something for all age groups.
  • The World famous Grange Fair has been a family tradition in Happy Valley for over 100 years. Good food, competitions, games and entertainment, something for everyone!
