County Parkland Acquisition
Totaling over 8,500 acres, the Bucks County park system represents the county’s longest standing commitment to open space preservation. Since the mid 1960s, all county-owned parkland has been protected by covenant held by the Park Preservation Board. Additions to the county park system using the 1997 Open Space Program funds involved the purchase of 55 parcels totaling 900 acres, featuring stream banks along designated greenways and in-fill parcels within existing county parks. These lands contribute to the overall vision for a linked park system connecting publicly accessible county and municipal open space areas and facilities.
