About Us

The Fairmount Park Conservancy exists to champion the Fairmount Park system. The Conservancy's mission is to work as a collaborative partner to lead and support efforts which preserve and improve Fairmount Park to enhance the quality of life and stimulate the economic development of the Greater Philadelphia Region. The Conservancy fulfills its mission by leading signature capital projects and innovative programs throughout Fairmount Park, developing and leveraging resources for the park, and promoting the parks' unique assets and contributions, working closely with the City of Philadelphia's Department of Parks and Recreation.

The Fairmount Park system covers more than 10,200 acres and is considered one of the largest urban park systems in the world. It includes a network of nearly 200 neighborhood parks and contains some of the region's most famous treasures and attractions. The Fairmount Park Conservancy is helping create and maintain a world-class, pre-eminent park system, and a national model for urban revitalization, sustainability, and civic engagement. We believe that parks can be catalysts for positive change in our city. We believe better parks make our individual lives healthier, our neighborhoods safer, and our region more competitive.
