Love Your Park This Saturday

Howard Street Park

As part of the Love Your Park campaign, The Fairmount Park Conservancy and Parks and Recreation will be holding a few area cleanups this Saturday.

Here is the word from their website:

LOVE Your Park Week  is an annual citywide celebration of Philadelphia’s diverse parks featuring a week of service projects, fun events, educational programs, family activities, tours, and more – at over 100 parks throughout Philadelphia. LOVE Your Park Week is a collaborative initiative between the Fairmount Park Conservancy and Philadelphia Parks & Recreation.
