A resident of Bucks County is being acknowledged by his community for the work he has done to keep a local park in tip-top shape. Ed Doyle wrote about the local man for TAPinto Doylestown.

Brian Guerriero received a thank-you from the Doylestown Borough Council for going above and beyond to rehabilitate Burpee Park. During a council meeting on Feb. 27, Mayor Noni West presented Guerriero with a certificate of appreciation for his efforts, including power washing and painting, as well as landscaping.

Guerriero decided to work on Burpee Park when he noticed that its pavilion had seen much better days. While he noted that the borough keeps up the park really well, care of the pavilion is more of a gray area. It was set up near the park’s entrance as a memorial to a relative, but starting a few years ago, the person who set it up could no longer maintain the building.

So Guerriero decided to jump in. One of the biggest jobs was handling the landscaping surrounding the building, as everything was overgrown and stuck to the walls.

“I had to figure out how to get the vines out of the brick and out of the rafters,” he said.

He then power washed and painted the building. Guerriero believes the building is now set for a while.
