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 Fall Service Day 2016
Mark your calendars! The LOVE Your Park Fall Service Day is scheduled for Saturday, November 12. Volunteer registration will open in mid October.
Philadelphia 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 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!
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!
