Fairmount Park Conservancy
We Are Park Innovators. We Are Park Champions.
We Are Park Partners. We Are Park Stewards.
Fairmount Park Conservancy believes in the power of open spaces and the importance of nature to urban communities. Philadelphia’s park system is one of the largest urban park systems in the world and includes some of the region’s most famous attractions.
Fairmount Park Conservancy exists to champion Philadelphia’s parks. We lead capital projects and historic preservation efforts, foster neighborhood park stewardship, attract and leverage investments, and develop innovative programs throughout the 10,200 acres that include Fairmount Park and more than 100 neighborhood parks around the city. We are passionate in our belief that open spaces and experiences provide residents of Philadelphia with the opportunity to gather, rejuvenate, play, exercise and explore.
