LOVE Your Park is a collaborative partnership among the Fairmount Park Conservancy, Philadelphia Parks & Recreation, and the Philadelphia Park Friends Network. We work together to steward Philadelphia’s neighborhood parks year-round by hosting clean-ups and workdays, planning community events, and investing in improvements. Each spring and fall we host LOVE Your Park, a citywide celebration and service day that engages thousands of volunteers and neighbors to clean, green, and celebrate Philadelphia’s parks.
We believe that community engagement in public spaces is key to creating and revitalizing communities and maintaining safe, welcoming, and family-friendly recreation opportunities.
