Aspen Glen Living: Everything You Need is Right Around the Corner

Hamden, Connecticut is a great place to live. Right in the back yard of our Aspen Glen Luxury Apartment Rentals or just a short bike or car ride away, there’s everything you could possibly need. From grocery stores, to doctors’ offices, to banks, and parks — we have it all!

In Our Back Yard

To put the “luxury” in Aspen Glen Luxury Apartments, right on-site there’s something for the athlete in everyone including: a swimming pool, tennis court, state of the art fitness center, and a jogging/walking path. If you’re more of a chef than an athlete, there’s a picnic and barbecue area. Our families with children enjoy taking the little ones to our on-site playground, pictured below.
