"LOVE Your Park is the biannual volunteer park clean-up day in Philadelphia with Philadelphia Parks & Recreation and PHS. This spring it will be held on Saturday, May 12th. Last spring 94 neighborhood parks participated, 2,350 volunteers came out to clean and green, totalling 7,050 hours of volunteer work. Approximately 2,433 bags of trash and 301 bags of recycling were collected, 31 tons of trash and debris removed, 29 trees planted, 8,634 flowers planted, and 173 graffiti sites abated. Help us make this year's LOVE Your Park Day an even bigger success!"
“Keeping our parks clean and green is another way of showing pride in our communities and loving the city we live and work in,” ~ Mayor Nutter.
