Trevose is a census-designated place of Bensalem and Lower Southampton Townships in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, United States, which is north of and borders northeastern Philadelphia. Trevose was formerly part of Feasterville-Trevose, but was split into two separate CDPs for the 2010 census. U.S. 1 runs through the town as well as the Pennsylvania Turnpike, but Trevose's main road is Brownsville Road. As of the 2010 census, Trevose had a population of 3,550.
The community is named after the home of settler Joseph Growden and itself after Growden's homestead in England (Growden was Cornish, Trevose is from the Cornish word Trenfos for farm.).
