LOVE Park is a SHOOTING STAR! – LOVE Park has transformed into a mecca for music, food and art! Every week day the public crams into the park for free concerts, the best food trucks in Philly, and very cool art displays!
The Welcome Center is open everyday and has souvenirs, tour tickets an art gallery and information about all things Philadelphia!
Home of Robert Indiana's famed "LOVE" sculpture, this park is one of Philly's most romantic spots. – In Short
In the 1960s, Philadelphia's JFK Plaza, also known as Love Park, was built at the eastern end of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway and diagonally across from City Hall. Sit on one of many benches and enjoy the sound of a bubbling fountain, with a view of the art museum in the distance. Robert Indiana's "LOVE" sculpture--hence the park's nickname--is not to be missed.
There are some great views of the city! – You've got a great view of City Hall which is adjacent to the southeast corner of the park. One of the best views in the whole city can be achieved by looking northwest down the Benjamen Franklin Parkway.
The Benjamin Franklin Parkway was modeled after Champs Elysees in Paris France. It is around 2 miles long and around 200 feet wide. It is a straight road. At one end in JFK Plaza and the the other end is the Philadelphia Art Museum. You can see the Art Museum from JFK Plaza. There is also a great fountain.
Across the street from the park on the south side is a 7-11 in case you get hungry or want a slurpee or something else to drink.
The only complaint that I have is that there are not that many big trees, even though there are trees. The trees just aren't that big.
No Love – Since they kicked out the skateboarders(entertainment), Love is just any other place. . Simply put, it's just a place to stop on you way to something else....don't make it your attraction.
love park used to be the best free place to go in the city until they put grass there. now it's just like everything else here. the only reason to actually go there was to watch people skateboard, and now that's gone too.
enter at your own risk – as much as i love the LOVE statue---i must say the park as much to be deesired.the last time i was there,it was full of dirt and junkies.
