Park Friends Network

Our spring and fall LOVE Your Park events are wonderful ways to bookend your year with getting out and giving back to the parks you love. But what about the rest of the year? 

Consider getting involved with the Philadelphia Park Friends Network by joining one of over 115 active Park Friends Groups. Park Friends Groups are neighborhood-based volunteer groups who help to steward Philadelphia’s parks and make them vibrant, inviting, and active public spaces. Park Friends Groups organize clean-ups and service days, plan community events, report needs and issues, help to raise funds and advocate for capital improvements, and generally serve as advocates for Philadelphia’s park system!

Check out the list of currently registered Park Friends Groups below. No Friends Group at your local park? Why not start one?! Check out Philadelphia Parks and Recreation’s Park Friends Group Toolkit and learn about how to start!
