As part of a Bucks County law firm, we live and work in a beautiful area in the Greater Philadelphia region. One of the jewels of Doylestown, where our office is located, is Lake Galena, a man-made reservoir in Peace Valley Park. The lake was created in the 1970s when the County of Bucks dammed the north branch of the Neshaminy Creek. Today, the lake is the centerpiece of the 1,500-acre Peace Valley Park, which offers walking / biking trails, fishing, boating, picnic areas and other recreational amenities, including the Peace Valley Nature Center.
