Philadelphia is a once-industrial city, rich in history, that has reimagined itself for the future through its parks and open spaces.

Birthplace of America and a city of firsts, Philadelphia embodies founder William Penn’s vision for a “green country town.” Its 10,200 acres of parkland include seven large watershed parks and more than 300 neighborhood parks, playgrounds, and recreation centers, public spaces that have played central roles in its development and resurgence in more recent times. Join over 1,000 park leaders from around the world as we explore the future of Philadelphia’s parks – driven by a 21st-century vision grounded in equity, access, and sustainability – and the creative ways the city is evolving to meet the needs of its diverse communities.
