MORRISVILLE RIVERFRONT PRESERVE: The 8.8 acre Morrisville Riverfront Preserve is located at Delmorr and Philadelphia Avenues, it offers riverfront access to a naturalized riverfront, a unique amenity in our heavily developed region.

The project began in January 2010 which led to the re-zoning of the land by Borough Council to Natural Lands and Community Service Districts and approval by the Bucks County Open Space Program for funds to support the project.

Eradication of invasive plant species was started in September as part of a two year water safe herbicide spraying program. Morrisville is partnering with the Delaware Riverkeeper Network who is providing assistance in developing restoration strategies that will ensure a successful and sustainable project.

Replanting the area with native plant species and clearing trail paths will occur in phases.

The Preserve will be a quiet place of nature for fishermen, bird watchers, walkers and paddlers. Riverfront restoration will improve air, water, land, and habitat quality, as well as provide improved floodplain function and flood protection. The preserve will provide the opportunity for public education on the value of natural waterfront habitats. The Morrisville Riverfront Preserve is a special place that has benefits for all.
