Playwicki Farm is an oasis with recreational opportunities geared to the surrounding population. Open space, walking trails, old growth forest, wetlands, picnic and play areas, agricultural land, a wildlife habitat and a renowned but now defunct quarry are all incorporated into one hundred and ten acres. There is also documented evidence of Native American habitation. In a relatively small space there is something for just about everyone. Stop by and you will enjoy yourself.
The Black Walnut from Playwicki Farm
There was once a large black walnut tree on the farm near where the playground is. That tree was cut down and an interesting story evolved. To take a look, click here,
HOLIDAY OPEN HOUSE
Santa arrived on a Fire Engine with gifts for all the children. There were crafts to do and cookies to munch on while listening to Christmas Carols. Parents were invited to bring their cameras to take photos and then we took the cameras and took photos of the whole family with Santa.
HORSE DRAWN WAGON RIDE
The rides were so much fun. Everyone loved it. We had great weather with a full moon. It was cold but the riders brought blankets and afterward we serve hot chocolate and cookies in the house. The Lower Southampton Park and Recreation Department girls read stories to the children while they sipped their chocolate. It was like stepping back into another time period.
