CHESTER SPRINGS, PA — Construction on the Barn at Upland Farm Park is now underway, with work continuing through the summer and into early fall, announced Upper Uwchlan Township.
The long-awaited renovations to the Barn will include the construction of classrooms, upgrades to the large meeting space, new entryway doors, a scenic porch, and bathrooms that will serve the park as a whole.
At their meeting on April 19, the Board of Supervisors awarded $2,069,565 in contracts for this work, which includes the installation of new water and sewer lines to the park.
Upland Farm is a 56-acre passive recreational area which is home to the Barn, an historic farmhouse, several outbuildings, and paved and natural trails. The Upland Farm Advisory Committee (UPFAC) began developing concept plans for the renovation and function of the Barn as a community space in 2011. Architectural designs for the renovation were developed at the time by the firm Archer & Buchanan, who reviewed and updated these plans in preparation for the 2021 request for bids.
The Board of Supervisors stated they are excited to move forward with this project. The park will remain open to the public throughout the construction, but park visitors are asked to avoid the construction area and heed all posted signage.
Upper Uwchlan Township is a Township of the Second class, population 11,500, located in central Chester County, PA. Visit us on the web at www.upperuwchlan-pa.gov.
