The Doylestown Pop Up Park, which made its first appearance in 2015, has had a positive impact on the whole community.  Restaurants and shops near the parks have reported a 20-25% increase in sales during the weekend-long event.  

Community Garden Grants – Since 1991 we have been providing grants for the development of community gardens throughout Bucks County. These include plantings at hospitals, war memorials, public parks, gateway gardens and town centers.  Pictured below are volunteers maintaining the Sack Race Garden which we sponsor at Doylestown’s Central Park.  We also award grants to area garden clubs who sponsor uplifting planters at nursing homes and long term care facilities.
