Volunteer registration for our LOVE Your Park Fall Service Day on November 14, 2015 will open in mid-October!

Philadelphia Parks and Recreation (PPR) stewards over 10,200 acres of park land across the city, from neighborhood parks like Clark Park that serve as community green spaces to larger natural areas like Wissahickon Valley Park that serve to protect our water and provide habitat.

Volunteers are essential to preserving and maintaining these vital public spaces! PPR and the Fairmount Park Conservancy work with over 100 community volunteer groups – known as Park Friends Groups – that support Philadelphia’s neighborhood parks by helping with basic maintenance, planning events, and serving as the voice of the community.

If you live in Philadelphia and want to get involved, please consider joining or starting a Park Friends Group! No experience is necessary – everyone has something to contribute! – and your service will help to make our communities great. You can also become a member of the Fairmount Park Conservancy.

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 the Conservancy at (215) 988-9334 for more information.
