Dr. Urban is an avid history buff with a love for Philly! Please join him in this amazing campaig!
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.
