Fairmount Park Conservancy brings parks to life. We improve and steward Philadelphia’s parks, enhance their historic and cultural assets, and support the communities they serve. We envision a vibrant, high-quality, and equitable park system that enriches the lives of all Philadelphians and serves as a model for excellence in civic engagement, environmental stewardship, historic preservation, and cultural vitality.
Thanks to hundreds of Park Champion runners who have participated over the last 7 years, we've been able to restore the historic Belmont Plateau 5k Cross Country Course and have built the first sections of the Trolley Trail—a planned 5 mile soft trail loop around West Park following the route of the former Fairmount Park Trolley.
