Volunteer at a Philly Park near you!

Wissinoming LYP Signature Site

Do you live in Philadelphia and are you interested in getting involved in your community? The Philadelphia Department of Parks and Recreation stewards over 10,200 acres of land throughout the city, from local neighborhood parks to diverse natural areas that serve as animal habitats for the region.

Volunteers are essential to preserving and maintaining these vital public spaces. Volunteer groups, or park friend groups, exist all over Philadelphia to support their parks locally. Want to get involved? You too can make a difference in your community! No experience is necessary, as everyone has skills that can contribute greatly.

Take a look at the map below to find a group near you. Contact information and park addresses can be found by clicking the red tab by the park name. Contact the park group directly or call 215-988-9334 to be put in touch.
