Love Your Park Fall Service Day is a city-wide cleanup taking place on November 10th at over 100 parks across Philadelphia. This is a great chance to get out to see the fall foliage and give a hand with trail maintenance or invasive species removal before winter. Your park will appreciate it now and next spring!
Many cleanups are happening at GoPhillyGo destinations! Android users can download the app in the Google Play Store to find events, parks, trails, and more on your mobile device. You can always find amazing destinations and plan trips by bike, foot, and transit to anywhere in the Philadelphia region on the GoPhillyGo mobile site.

Join volunteers at this year’s signature Love Your Park Fall Day of Service Cleanup. Meet at the Cobbs Creek Community Environmental Center and help clean up this important park. The Center is a short distance off the Cobbs Creek Trail which connects to Bartram’s Garden and the 63rd Street Market-Frankford Line station. Click here for directions.
Help remove invasive plant species and plant trees at the brand new Schuylkill Center gateway to the Schuylkill River Trail (SRT). Riding or walking along the SRT is the most direct way to get here but SEPTA bus routes 9, 27, and 62 drop you off a short distance from the Hagy’s Mill Road entrance to the Center.

Help in the transformation of this beautiful section of West Fairmount Park. Volunteers will work on the newest section of the Trolley Trail and help with trash clean up, invasive vegetation removal, and trail closures/realignments. Click here for directions to the meet-up location!
Sometimes old trails become unsustainable due to erosion and poor drainage. A new section of trail in Wissahickon Valley Park recently opened to replace a trail that was no longer suitable for use. Come out and help plant native trees and shrubs to help give the old trail back to the forest. Click here for directions to the meet-up point!
