Cultural Opportunities

Philadelphia Parks & Recreation not only offers great, year-round activities, we also offer annual cultural opportunities for the artistically-inclined, or any brave soul who has something to express.
Arts and Artists Outdoors (A2O)
A2O is a cutting-edge partnership with the Mural Arts Program that pairs middle school-aged youth with a professional artist-in-residence at their local recreation center to create artwork that highlights a nearby green space.
