Love Your Park Week 2019, in 15 photos

by Melissa Romero on May 20, 2019

For nine days, Philly showed its love for its many parks during Love Your Park Week 2019 by cleaning, greening, and celebrating public spaces! Approximately 100 parks hosted volunteer cleanups, bringing communities together to beautify their neighborhood parks. In addition, more than 50 parks hosted events such as hikes, bilingual bird walks, bike rides, plant sales, and more fun and free events!

Thank you to all of the volunteers who showed their parks some love last week and who continue to do so every day.

Here, relive the whole week in 15 photos! And save the date for November 9, 2019 for Love Your Park Fall Service Day!
