I lived in Lacey Park until 1959. I remember lots of kids and even as a young child I felt a sense of community there. All my relatives lived there too. My Dad was in the Navy at the time. Lacey Park was real sad looking for awhile, but now looks alot like I remember it.

I don't live in the park but I been goin there for years since I was 10, i know alot of people there and it does look better than when my dad said it was when he was a kid and in tennent. All communities have problems and there are people with problems but warminster is still the cleanest, yes we smoke bud but that's not the problem, and these warminster cop are making it one. Get the real drugs off the street and this place will look like paradise

Haven't a lot of folks been leaving Warminster and moving to upper Bucks and Montgomery counties? My sister in the Harleysville area says there's been quite an influx over the years.

I lived there as a kid from 1957 to 1966. The owner of the property Dr. Gabriel Elias REFUSED to make any repairs to anything. The roads were full of holes, sewage backed up into the streets, damaged units were boarded up instead of fixed and no upgrades to the properties were ever made. His brother Hymie used to drive through at times and we'd throw rotten apples at his car. The only good thing sbout living there was all the houses were very close together so you got to know alot of neighbors and for us kids there were plenty of kids nearby to play with. Everybody was within walking distance of each other so you really got a sense of community living there.


Thanks for your post. Some of my best friends lived in Lacey Park.

Great comments about Lacey Park. I did not live there, but went to St. John Bosco School. Some of my best and closest friends lived in Lacey Park. The sense of community there was impressive. Lacey Park had lots of tightknit and close families and neighbors who cared about one another. I taught at William Tennent HS and when I had to call a family from LP about their kid, the parents got on that kid and he shaped-up right away! Lacey Park is now a safe place to live.

I lived in Lacy Park in the late 40s and moved out in 1952 when I was 6. It was a kid friendly place, where neighbors helped neighbors.
Christmas time the Dads would try to outdo each other building train platforms.
There was a dance school at the community school and Sunday School classes.
I lived on Rush Street. The family names I remember were Cannon and Patterson and Price.
We were poor, but that is no crime. We were always clean and dressed well.
I have a few photos I could post if there a way to do it.
