Buxton Conservancy Grand Opening
Buxton Conservancy Grand Opening Saturday April 25, 2015 at 10:00 am.
In 2011, Philip and Jane Buxton passed away and bequeathed their 47+ acre wooded property located on Fitterling Road with their unfinished French Provincial  home and garage to Brecknock Township to be used by the Township for recreational purposes. With a Grant from the Berks County Community Foundation, the property has been transformed into a passive recreational facility for area residents to enjoy with trails and benches over wooded rolling land.  The Conservancy will be opened from dawn to dusk, with parking outside the gate and rules and regulations posted at the entrance kiosk. An opening ceremony will be held on April 25 starting at 10:00 AM at the site of the old home location.
