Brandywine Picnic Park, at the former Lenape Park site in East Bradford Township, has found its new owner, writes Bill Rettew for the Daily Local News

Muhly Schorn III LLC acquired the 22-acre property on May 9 for $570,000 from the Capps Family, which operated the popular site for corporate and organizational get-togethers for decades. The park was originally listed in 2019 for $1.49 million. 

The area where the park is situated is often flooded by Brandywine Creek. Most recently, the remnants of Hurricane Ida washed away several picnic park buildings at the site. 

The property is zoned for residential, commercial, and agricultural uses, but is not expected that the township will allow any new construction. However, the new owner could use the site for passive recreation without adding new buildings.
