Philadelphia’s park system has more than 10,000 acres of open space including trails, streams, forest and 75 neighborhood playgrounds spread across the city. The alfresco public space is an awesome asset for residents and visitors to enjoy, but it’s also a lot to upkeep and take care of.
Enter Philadelphia’s third annual “LOVE Your Park Week,” taking place May 10 through 17 and presented by Philadelphia Parks and Recreation, the Fairmount Park Conservancy and neighborhood park groups.
Outdoor events of all sort make up the weeklong event — service days, festivals, family-friendly events and much more.
