Philadelphia Parks & Recreation

Philadelphia Parks & Recreation connects the city’s residents to the natural world, to each other, and to fun physical and social opportunities. We manage historically significant Philadelphia events and special venues, and we work with communities and organizations, leading capital projects, and introducing creative programming.

Community gardeners can now donate their surplus produce to local shelters in the city!

Philadelphia Parks & Recreations has teamed up with Food Connect!
