About

Love Your Park is a biannual event that cleans, greens, and celebrates Philly’s parks. A collaborative partnership among Fairmount Park Conservancy, Philadelphia Parks & Recreation, and the Park Friends Network, Love Your Park engages citizens and volunteers to revitalize Philadelphia’s public green spaces and create safe, welcoming, and fun recreation opportunities in parks across the city. Nearly 100 park friends groups participate each season, engaging 5,000 volunteers annually.

Love Your Park Week: May 12-20, 2018

Love Your Park Week is held each May and offers nine days of volunteer opportunities and special events that celebrate Philly’s parks. We kick off LYP Week with a citywide service day to “clean and green,” engaging 2,500 volunteers to clean up trash and litter, tend gardens and flower beds, care for trees, and more. The kick-off service day is followed by dozens of fun, free events in parks across Philadelphia that celebrate our public green spaces and invite neighbors to get involved.

Fall Service Day: November 10, 2018

The Love Your Park Fall Service Day is held each November and engages volunteers to plant trees, collect leaves for compost, and prepare our parks for the winter season.
