Celebrate Trails Day, Earth Day, and many other exciting events take place this month at parks, trails, and environmental centers. We want to make sure you don’t miss out on the festivities because of traffic, parking, or expensive gas by helping you plan a sustainable trip to the fun. GoPhillyGo is the easiest way to plan walking, biking, and transit trips, and all you need to do is visit the GoPhillyGo mobile site or download the Android app to get easy car-free directions to parks, trails, events, and more.
We put together a list of upcoming events that we are excited about, but make sure you visit the GoPhillyGo Events page to find even more fun activities happening this spring that you can walk, ride, or take public transit to. When you plan a trip on GoPhillyGo, you are helping to lower air pollution in the region, and spending time outside improves your overall well being, so ditch the car and use GoPhillyGo to plan your next outdoor adventure!
Join our friends Feet First Philly, Clean Air Council, and 12 other local organizations for a fun day of walks, clean-ups, archery, horseback riding, and more to celebrate Cobbs Creek Trail. Activities are taking place all along the trail, so bring your walking shoes, bike, or enjoy a ride on one of the many SEPTA routes that can get you to Cobbs Creek Park.
Celebrate the Tacony Creek Trail with a clean-up and bioblitz in this important urban greenspace in North Philadelphia. The bioblitz starts at 10am, and all you need to do to participate is download the free INaturalist app and start documenting the wildlife you see. The clean-up will follow at 11am.
