  • Playwicki Farm Board

    • About the Board
    • Board Members

    •  

      Playwicki Farm is located on Bridgetown Pike in Lower Southampton Township, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Open space, old growth forest, wetlands, agricultural land, a wildlife habitat and a renowned but now defunct quarry are all incorporated into one hundred and ten acres.

      In May of 1994 the Board of Supervisors of Lower Southampton Township finalized the purchase of the property from the estate of Elizabeth Snodgrass thereby preserving the last large open space in the township for all to enjoy.

      The Playwicki Farm Foundation was created in September of 1996 as an independent, tax exempt corporation to raise money for charitable, education and scientific purposes. The funds are to be used for the repair, replacement, maintenance and preservation of Playwicki Farm and the development of educational programs.

      We need your help and your support. Together we can make Playwicki Farm a wonderful place to play.
