Perkasie has an extensive park system and an active Parks and Recreation Board that offers many activities throughout the Borough.
Winter Trail Information:
For Borough Park Trail Snow Information, please refer to Resolution #2008-34:
“Snow plowing of streets and roadways, park service drives, municipal parking lots, sidewalks on Borough-owned properties, and any emergency needs are to take priority over snow removal. However, removal of snow from the designated areas is to be a priority of plowing of snow from municipal bike paths.”
The Borough trails will be cleared when possible, but snow and ice covered areas may remain for an extended period of time after a storm. Surfaces may be slippery. Residents may still access the parks for winter recreation activities; however, they do so at their own risk.
Borough Protected Parks & Open Space
Open space in Perkasie makes up over 200 acres. Four main parks make up the Borough’s recreational space and total over 80 acres. Borough protected greenways and open space land consist over close to 100 acres. Protected land from homeowner associations in the Borough make up another 38 acres.

Liberty Bell Trail Feasibility Study Update
This project was financed, in part, by grants from the Community Conservation Partnership Program, Keystone Recreation, Park and Conservation Fund, under the administration of the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Bureau of Recreation and Conservation; and the Greenways, Trails & Recreation Program under the administration of the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development. Gilmore & Associates completed the update to the 2005 study in December of 2020 and the executive summary and maps are below. This was a multi municipal project and we thank our surrounding communities for their participation and encouragement. This will be a major accomplishment for the trail system and we hope to get started with smaller projects and gain additional grant funding to make this Corridor of History a reality.
