Friends of the Allentown Parks is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the preservation and improvement of the parks in Allentown, Pennsylvania.  Our city is home to a beautiful and expansive system of 49 parks—the parks cover more than 2000 acres of land and comprise over 13% of the city’s total acreage.  Parks improve our quality of life in many ways; they provide recreation opportunities, quiet refuge, environmental benefit, and opportunities to connect with nature.  Friends hopes that you will join us in working to make this great park system even better.  Please explore our site for information about the many ways to become involved, from joining as a member and supporting our park improvement projects to volunteering your time in one of the many parks or playgrounds throughout the City.

On our website you can find information about our organization, Events in the Allentown Parks, Membership, the Remembrance Tree Program, Volunteers in the Parks (VIP) opportunities, the Newsletter, and Links to other resources and organizations related to the Allentown Parks.
