Parks and Rec Heroes: Tools for Heroes

We build advocacy and engagement tools for Parks and Rec volunteers and staff. But sometimes Parks and Rec heroes need physical tools. We will be giving away $8,000 of Lowe’s tools to 10 Recreation Centers on the first day of spring in 2020. We will select the giveaway sites in partnership with Parks and Rec staff and through a simple nomination process that encourages Recreation Centers to tell a story of a need they can address with a few tools.

In 2021, we will add a Parks and Rec Heroes Picnic and a storytelling project at half a dozen sites.

 

Parks Alliance Annual Report

The Philadelphia Parks and Recreation budget is an important investment in our city. In our annual report we will:

  • Analyze the current and potential return on investment of additional funding for the parks and recreation system

  • Describe how spending can address historical inequities in our system of recreation centers and parks

  • Highlight information in a way that builds public support for robustly funding parks and recreation centers

  • Identify opportunities for outside partners and funders to support recreation centers and parks

Victories

As champions of Philadelphia parks, recreation and open spaces, we have notched important victories since our founding in 1984.
