New Britain Township Veterans Committee is currently in the early planning stages of creating a facility known as Veterans Park to honor all Veterans who served or are presently serving in the United States Armed Forces. The Park will be located on 62+ acres at New Galena Road and Walters Road. The land is owned by Bucks County and leased to New Britain Township for Parkland and Agricultural uses.

The Transportation Program is overseen by the Bucks County Department of Veterans Afairs and has carried over 11,000 Veterans FREE of charge. The bus runs 5 days a week coveraing all of Bucks County.
The program is unique because it is not a taxpayer funded program, but rather depends on donations and an annual golf outing. In addition the VA Hospital in Coatesville pays for all maintenance, fuel, and Insurance.
