Places to Go

Philadelphia is filled with places to go from parks and trails to sculptures and places to eat. We have all of the ideas you need for a fun filled day.

Get Involved

The people who make our Department work every day have the privilege of being stewards of the City’s environmental, cultural and historical assets. We ask that you Get Involved in your own way. Here is an overview of some of the ways that you can.

Environment

The mission of Philadelphia Parks & Recreation focuses on preserving and enhancing existing green spaces while also expanding the amount of green, public space available in the City.

History

PPR is proud to provide historical services, facilities and other assets to the public everyday throughout our park system.
