Our Story

The New Britain Civic Associationformed in 1953is a non-profit, non-political organization which, since 1957, has owned and operated the 14-acre Covered Bridge Park on Keeley Avenue. Though the park has become the major focus of the Association in recent years, and is still a very important focus of our organization, it also sponsors other community activities such as hosting astronomical events, the community Christmas tree lighting, and the youth summer recreation program.

The Association meets every third Monday of the month at 7:30 PM in Burkart Hall on Keeley Avenue. 

Save the date for the 2018 Duck Derby, which will be held on September 29, 2018. Our previous Duck Derby events have been a great success! We have  the raised money for Habitat of Humanity of Bucks County, the 9/11 Memorial. the Chalfont Fire Company, A Women's Place, the Walter Harvey War Memorial in New Britain, and the New Britain Baptist Church Food Larder, which will be our recipient again this year. Everyone has a great time! Enjoy this video of a previous Duck Derby. View the video here.
