Got a favorite park? Now is your chance to show it some love with Love Your Park @ Home, a nine-day celebration of Philly parks. Beginning tomorrow, Saturday, May 9, this annual springtime festivity will encourage Philadelphians to celebrate from the comfort and safety of their homes through Sunday, May 17.
Typically, we celebrate Love Your Park week with community clean-ups and group-oriented events, and while that's not an option this year, your parks and trails groups are still here for you!
