LOVE Your Park Week 2016

LOVE Your Park Week 2016 (May 7-May 14) was our biggest and best yet! Over 2,000 volunteers helped to clean, green, and celebrate parks across Philadelphia. THANK YOU to all of the Park Friends Groups, volunteers, and sponsors who made it possible!

LOVE Your Park Year-Round: Park Friends Groups

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 joining your local Philadelphia Park Friends Group. Park Friends Groups are committed, community-based volunteers who organize clean-ups and events in their neighborhood park throughout the year. By joining in their clean-ups or participating in one of their events, you are sure to meet neighbors who want to support your community and help carry out the mission of preserving you local park for all!

No Friends Group in your area? Why not start one?! Check out Philadelphia Parks and Recreation’s Park Friends Group Toolkit and learn about how to start!
