Park Friends Network

The Park Friends Network (PFN) is made up of 130 community-run park friends groups who help to steward Philadelphia’s public parks. These community groups register with Philadelphia Parks & Recreation annually and work together to make our parks vibrant, inviting, and active public spaces that strengthen our communities. Park friends groups organize clean-ups and volunteer workdays, plan community events, help to raise funds for improvements, and advocate for Philadelphia’s public park system. 

Park friends groups are always looking for new members and volunteers. To get involved, please contact your local park friends group using the information below. No group at your local park? Learn how to start one by checking out the Park Friends Group Toolkit and contacting the Philadelphia Parks & Recreation Stewardship office at  PPRstewardship@phila.gov or call (215) 683-3640.
