About the Friends of FDR Park

The Friends of FDR Park is a volunteer-led organization that loves FDR Park and wants to see the Park continue to grow and improve.

The Friends of FDR are part of a citywide network of neighborhood park volunteers, coordinated by Philadelphia Parks & Recreation and Fairmount Park Conservancy. Philadelphia Parks & Recreation is responsible for the maintenance and permitting of the park, while the Friends of FDR organize fellow volunteers in planting, greening, fundraising, and event planning.
