Concession opportunities

 Anyone who provides goods or services and generates revenue on Philadelphia Parks & Recreation land must have a contract with Philadelphia Parks & Recreation to do so.

Types of concessions

Parks & Rec’s Concessions Management Unit currently contracts with about 50 different food service and recreation businesses operating in Philadelphia’s parks and recreation system. These include:

  • Mobile food vending
  • Cafes
  • Bike rental kiosks
  • Golf courses


Most concessions opportunities arise from a request for proposal (RFP) that is issued by Parks & Rec.
