About Us

The Barclay Grounds Preservation Alliance

The Barclay Grounds Preservation Alliance is a group of volunteers who worked together to create awareness of the plan to develop the Barclay Grounds and helped the community make its voice heard on this issue. The Group is now involved in fund raising to help the Borough of West Chester purchase the property so that it can be preserved as a park.


Our mission is to preserve the beautiful, historic and ecologically important Barclay grounds for the enjoyment of current residents and visitors – and for future generations.
