Buckingham Township celebrated the official opening of the Holicong Park expansion Oct. 13.
The original park contained 24.5 acres and was home to two multi-purpose sports fields, a small playground and a community garden. The 58-acre Holicong Park expansion brings the total acreage to 83.
The expansion includes six new multi-use soccer and lacrosse fields, two basketball courts, two tennis and pickle ball courts, over 2 miles of paved scenic trails and a half mile of grass trail, a new pavilion with lavatories, a new tot lot, natural meadow areas, picnic areas with benches, parking areas and a future connection to the Buckingham Green commercial area and Buckingham Village.
A grant from the Pennsylvania Greenways, Trails and Recreation Program helped pay for the expansion.
