The new 17-acre land tract is situated along Landis Store Road and was purchased for $145,000 from the Fischer family on July 31, 2012. The funds came in part from a $67,500 grant obtained from DCNR, with the remaining funds coming from the Township and a gift from the Fischer family. The new tract will be named "The Margareta Fischer Park."
District Township has increased the park's open space to nearly 75 continuous acres, which will remain a natural area for hiking, bird-watching, environmental research, and other outdoor activities for Township residents.
