Township History

Warwick Township, founded by petition February 13, 1733, was named after a small town in central England. Prior to 1819, the Township boundaries were more extensive and were adjusted when Doylestown Township was established.

As of the 2020 census, this 11.1 square mile Township has 15,851 residents.  An increase of 414 residents since 2010.  The character of the community is mostly suburban, mixed with some commercial, industrial, and rural areas. Over 1,100 acres of land has been permanently preserved by the Township, with additional acreage preserved by either Bucks County or the Heritage Conservancy.

Warwick Township is a Township of the second class, governed by the Second Class Township Code. It is governed by three elected supervisors, who serve staggered, six year terms. Local government services include:  Police, Planning and Zoning, Public Works, Parks and Recreation, and Administration and Finance.  All departments are supervised by the appointed Township Manager who carries out the policies of the Board of Supervisors.  More information for each department can be found here.

Warwick Township is served by the Central Bucks School District and is home to three grade schools and one Vo-tech school.
