Playwicki Farm Trail Plans

Playwicki Farm is a 100-acre public park owned by Lower Southampton Township. It is one of the last remaining open space parcels in the township with significant natural and historic resources.
Heritage Conservancy developed a master plan for the site in 1995 and has subsequently designed, mapped and implemented a trail system. A one-mile handicapped-accessible, paved trail meanders through the historic and natural areas of the open farmstead, providing opportunities to passively view the scenic, panoramic landscape. The paved trail links to additional trails in the naturalized area, providing a total of 3.2 miles of diverse trail conditions.
As part of the project, Heritage Conservancy prepared informational materials regarding the challenges posed by the entire trail environment, such as level of accessibility and trail surface, so that visitors can choose which parts of the trail to attempt.
