LOVE Your Park
LOVE Your Park is a collaborative partnership among the Fairmount Park Conservancy, Philadelphia Parks & Recreation, our amazing Park Friends Groups, and our generous sponsors. We work together to steward and support Philadelphia’s network of neighborhood parks year-round, and each spring and fall we host LOVE Your Park, a citywide celebration of our public green spaces that engage 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.
LOVE Your Park Week
LOVE Your Park Week is an eight-day, citywide celebration of Philadelphia’s parks held each May. LOVE Your Park Week features a week of service projects, fun events, educational programs, family activities, tours, and more at over 100 parks throughout Philadelphia. We kickoff LYP Week with a citywide Service Day organized by over 100 neighborhood Park Friends Groups. We host 2,000 volunteers who work hard to clean and green Philly’s parks and help prepare them for the summer season.
2017 Dates: Saturday, May 13 – Sunday, May 21
LOVE Your Park Fall Service Day
The LOVE Your Park Fall Service Day is held at 100 neighborhood parks across Philadelphia each November. This one-day citywide event invites Philadelphia friends and neighbors to plant trees, collect leaves for compost, and prepare their public green spaces for the winter season.
