In 2022 the Community Needs Assessment Identified that there as a need for more Arts and Culture in the Parks and was added to the Play for all Plan as an area to address. As a follow up AOY Art Center and the Parks and Recreation Department put their heads together to find a way to imbed Art within the Parks. After reaching out to Seward Johnson Atelier located next to the Grounds for Sculpture we identified a project partner that would allow the Township to host sculptures for a six-month period within the parks. The theme of the project is the vision of the Parks Department “Play for All.” Artist of Yardley committed $2,500 to the project, the Township committed $5,000 to the project and recently Visit Bucks County Granted the Artist of Yardley an additional $7,500 for this project. This will allow the Township and the Artist of Yardley to imbed 8 sculptures throughout the parks and implement programming that encompasses all forms of art to include visual and performing arts.
