There are more than 300 neighborhood parks across the City of Philadelphia, and over 90 of them will be hosting clean-up service days May 13-21 for Love Your Park Week.
Love Your Park is a program of Philadelphia Parks & Recreation and Fairmount Park Conservancy, in partnership with the Park Friends Network, made up of volunteer groups who steward their neighborhood parks. Every spring, thousands of volunteers come out to clean and green their parks, plant trees, clean up litter, and more to help prepare parks for the summer. To lend a hand at one of the clean-ups, please register to volunteer today.
Join with community members to plant trees, collect leaves for compost, and clean up trash and litter your neighborhood park. All tools and materials, including gloves, will be provided.
Love Your Park is made possible thanks to the support of Knight Foundation, TD Bank, and PECO.
Fairmount Park Conservancy exists to champion Philadelphia’s parks. We lead capital projects and historic preservation efforts, foster neighborhood park stewardship, attract and leverage investments, and develop innovative programs throughout the 10,200 acres that include Fairmount Park and more than 100 neighborhood parks around the city.
