A program in partnership with:
We Walk PHL seeks to promote positive health outcomes, increase use of Philadelphia’s park system, and create opportunities for people to pursue fitness goals while meeting their neighbors.
We Walk PHL is a free walking group that meets several times per week at various public parks. Launched as a pilot program in 2017, We Walk PHL is a partnership between Fairmount Park Conservancy, the Philadelphia Department of Public Health (Get Healthy Philly), and Philadelphia Parks & Recreation. We Walk PHL is funded in part by the Pa. Department of Health’s Preventive Health and Health Services Block Grant.
Walking group leaders are recruited from the communities surrounding the parks, and receive training from We Walk program staff. Walks take place one-three days per week at each site, and last around an hour.
For walk schedules, meeting locations, and other relevant updates, please visit the We Walk PHL public group page on Facebook.
“We Walk PHL is awesome. It’s a great way to enjoy the beauty outside. It’s free and a great way to reduce stress. I have lost a few pounds and gained a few friends.” – Robin, We Walk PHL: East Fairmount Park participant
