Philadelphia Parks & Recreation's mission is to advance the prosperity of our city and the people within it by protecting over 10,200 acres of public land and waterways, and managing hundreds of recreation, environmental, and cultural centers. With hundreds of parks, trails, rec centers, historic and cultural attractions, and other public facilities in Philadelphia County, Philly Parks & Rec helps the city's children and residents grow by connecting them to the natural world, to each other, and to fun, physical and social opportunities.
In nearly every Philadelphia neighborhood, there is a park offering a way to escape the urban landscape of the city. Lucky for you, SEPTA goes nearly everywhere in this city! We've teamed up with Philly Parks & Rec to encourage our riders to explore all the great parks Philadelphia has to offer, whether it's in your neighborhood or across the city. Because with SEPTA, there is no park too far!
With so many beautiful and unique parks to choose from, we highlighted a few of our favorites. Check out what each has to offer, how to get there on SEPTA, and get ready to start your adventure!
