About Markward The Markward Playground & Recreation Center is a destination rec center in the Fitler Square neighborhood of Philadelphia. The facility includes a community building, playground, tennis courts, basketball courts, baseball field, and O’Connor pool.

These programs and facilities are supported by a partnership between the Philadelphia Parks & Recreation Department and community members who serve on the Markward Recreation Advisory Council (MRAC). The City created Advisory Councils to support local recreation centers and playgrounds. MRAC is made up of volunteers from the community. We work closely with the City’s Parks & Rec staff to assist with programming, fundraising, special events, maintenance, and physical improvements. If you are interested in joining MRAC or attending a meeting, please email us at [email protected] untitled image.
