Two Chester County attractions and a rush-hour birth have found their way onto this year’s Best of Philly list released by the Philadelphia Magazine.

ChesLen Preserve in Coatesville won Best Kid Friendly Hiking Trail. The area, which is also pet-friendly, offers so much more than its nine miles of unpaved trails, including the all-time favorite Ollie Owl playground.

This natural play space features a wooden swing, tree stumps ideal for climbing, a log bridge and a shallow stream.

Meanwhile, Devon Lanes in Devon has been named the best bowling alley of the year. The suburban gem opened in 1959 and still retains the charm of another era, including its very affordable prices.

As a bonus, the title for Best Wellness Story went to Rush-Hour Birth by Maeve Sherry.

Wayne residents Keating and Yiran Sherry were on their way to Paoli Hospital for the delivery of their child when they hit rush hour. Yiran’s labor contractions intensified, but thanks to the car’s autopilot, her husband was able to comfort his wife as she gave birth to their daughter Maeve.
