Community Day: Love Your Park at Home May 13th Schedule
Wednesday, May 13th is Community Day during Love Your Park @ Home! Here are all the things you can learn, share, and do in celebration of community in Philly parks.
LEARN: All the reasons to love FDR Park
Now is the perfect time to fall in love (or fall in love again!) with FDR Park, South Philadelphia’s largest and most dynamic public space. FDR Park - also known as The Lakes - offers over 350 acres of lakes, fields, meadows, bridges, marshes, mystery, and magic. A unique recreational and natural landscape activated by the incredible cultural diversity of South Philadelphia, FDR Park is truly a gem of Philadelphia’s public park system.
