Fairmount Park Conservancy was honored to be selected for the Community Development Investments (CDI) program of ArtPlace America.  One of six not-for-profits across the country, the Conservancy was given the opportunity to invest in arts and culture as part of its mission to make the Fairmount Park System a national model of urban revitalization, sustainability and civic engagement.

Join us as we continue to explore how the work of artists and cultural organizations can enrich our neighborhood parks and make our signature watershed parks hum with vitality, interpretation and community connection.
