About Ivyland

The Borough of Ivyland, Bucks County, is the second smallest in area and one of the smallest boroughs in population in the state of Pennsylvania. Despite its size, Ivyland is a uniquely historic area, with most of the Borough listed on the National Register of Historic Places and described as “perhaps the finest collection of Victorian buildings in the state.”

Ivyland is governed by an elected Borough Council of seven members who serve four-year terms. The Mayor, also elected for a four-year term, is responsible for the police force, serves on the public safety committee, and officiates at many civic events.

The town is served by our own police force, with seven part-time officers and an Officer-in-Charge; and by the Ivyland Volunteer Fire Company, which includes a first-response medical emergency unit.

Ivyland parks include The Common on Wilson Avenue that has a playground, picnic tables and benches, a large open space for sports and Borough events as well as the War Memorial. The Ivy Glen Park is located at the end of Twining Avenue on Chase Avenue. It includes a small pond originally created — long before fire hydrants — by the Fire Company to ensure an adequate supply of water. With the completion of The Village development, an additional park and playground have been added.

Traditions

There is special magic that only lives in small villages through its practiced traditions. Over the years, many activities and events have become part of life in Ivyland. A few are sponsored by the Parks and Recreation Committee, but most are long-standing volunteer traditions.

In the spring, there is the Easter Egg Hunt. On Memorial Day, there is a parade involving most of the population. Another town-wide event is the Ivyland 5K Fun Run in the summer. Throughout the year, the Fire Company produces their famous Sunday morning Pancake Breakfasts.

In past years, some Ivyland traditions and events have included a Summer Garden Tour and Tea Party and May Day, when tiny baskets of flowers sometimes have mysteriously appeared at everyone’s door, and Peach Festival at the Ivyland Presbyterian Church.

Every year, in mid-September, the Park and Rec Board organizes a Borough-Wide Yard Sale. Autumn events include the Halloween Hayride and the Town’s Fall Bonfire.

In the Winter, things really get busy. In early December, Santa arrives riding on a fire truck and residents start baking cookies for the Cookie Exchange. The Church welcomes us to the Christmas Tree lighting and carol sing, while Christmas Eve brings Real Holiday Magic as Luminarias line our streets.

As we emerge from the current pandemic, we look forward to seeing our residents getting together to participate in these great traditions.  Be sure to check our Calendar of Events and Facebook page for information on happenings around the Borough.
