Welcome to the FDR Park Survey! Fairmount Park Conservancy and Philadelphia Parks and Recreation are creating a new master plan for FDR Park, and we want your feedback! The master plan will help us make improvements to the park over the next 20-30 years, so we need to know what YOU – the people who use and love FDR Park - think about the park and what we could do to make it even better.

This brief but vital survey will help us manage FDR Park for the next 20 years. Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts!
