New Park Construction to Begin Near DCNR Trail Gap

Construction of a new community park is set to begin this summer in Richland Township, Bucks County.

The new park is adjacent to the Brayton Garden Trail, a paved, multi-use section of the Pennsylvania Highlands Trail Network (PHTN). This trail connects the Brayton Garden and Hunter’s Crossing neighborhoods to Quakertown Borough. The new park will be located within a major trail gap area identified in the Trail Gap Study prepared in 2009 by the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR). This trail gap, labeled as Gap #11 on DCNR’s Trail Gap Map, is identified as “Nockamixon State Park to Quakertown to Green Lane Park. 

Tollgate Landing Gap

The trail gap adjacent to the new park is located in land owned privately by the Tollgate Landing Homeowners Association. When this trail gap is completed, the new trail will connect the Tollgate Landing neighborhood and Trumbauersville to the new park, existing trails in Richland and Milford Townships, and Quakertown Borough. Completing this gap will also create nearly 12 miles of connected trails and sidewalks from the Lehigh County line to Milford Township, Bucks County.

The new park will contain playing fields, tot lot and play equipment for 6-12 year olds, walking trail, pavilion, parking area and landscaping. The park will also serve as a trailhead for the PHTN.
