Did you know that Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, has more than 10,000 acres of parks and recreation facilities, including 215 miles of biking, hiking and walking trails? We did! That’s why L.L.Bean is partnering with the city to provide outdoor programs to residents.
To kick off our partnership, L.L.Bean supplied Philadelphia Parks & Recreation with slope sliders, sonic saucers, headlamps, lanterns and flashlights to help city residents enjoy the outdoors. All winter long, Philadelphia Parks & Recreation will lend the gear to Philadelphia residents free of charge.
With new gear in tow, we recently joined Philadelphia officials and residents for an afternoon of outdoor adventure at the Laura Sims Skate House.
If you’re in the Philadelphia area, head on over to Cobbs Creek Recreation Center and Laura Sims Skate House to borrow slope sliders, or go to Pennypack Environmental Center and Wissahickon Environmental Center to try the saucer sleds, headlamps, lanterns and flashlights.
For more details about the City of Philadelphia’s programs featuring free L.L.Bean gear, check out this recent post from the Philadelphia Health Examiner.
Stay tuned for more Philadelphia outdoor programs when winter gives way to spring – and warmer weather.
