good info from you guys
the only thing i disagree with is the neighborhood around Belmont Plateau. That's not a bad neighborhood at all. I wouldn't wander into Wynnewood, which is west of Belmont, but the park area itself and access from center city is fine.
I would also add that the northern area of Fairmont Park [Wissahickon Valley[, which is sort of not really connected to the southern area, is pretty amazing too. from Roxborough all the way up through Valley Green and on to the Philly / Montgomery County border at Wissahickon Ave near Chestnut Hill College. Endless miles of shaded hilly trails and a wide, flat hard-packed trail that runs the length of that section of park.
this is a cycling map but shows access to the park from downtown pretty clearly:
and this one shows the whole region: http://www.fairmountpark.org/pdf/Philadelphia%20Bicycle%20Map.pdf
