Love Park, Philadelphia

(3.3/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
Experience the City of Brotherly Love's central plaza, Love Park, nicknamed for its famous sculpture. This park, which is officially known as John F. Kennedy Plaza, is most recognized as the site of Robert Indiana's iconic Love statue. The park was built in 1965, but Indiana's sculpture was added in 1976 in celebration of the United States' bicentennial. It became a permanent fixture of the park in 1978 and has since become a symbol of the city. The park sits near City Hall and the Philadelphia Museum of Art, among other tourist attractions. Take time to walk through the city center, take a photo with the Love sculpture, and pass by the Love Fountain, which is dyed various colors throughout the year to commemorate different events. Make Love Park a centerpiece of your Philadelphia vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Philadelphia trip builder.

  • Who as, and I liked the place. What do you think is there in the first place? About love! And let the LOVE letter someone invented to put here, but the situation immediately immerses you or in memory of a past love, or in the eyes of the beloved, which is now s toboyu ryadom.

  • You haven't been to Philly if you took a picture in front of the statue Love and tiny little in the background, the Philadelphia Museum as big as a stamp. There's a row of tourists ...

  • This is an iconic sign and a great place for a picture. The park was under development, but you could still get to the LOVE sign.  more »

  • Going to Love Park, Arch St, Philadelphia, PA 19102 was nice on a walk around center city Philly. Quite a few locals trying to ask you to pay them to take your photo with your camera. Not ideal if you ask me I declined.
  • Quite touristy, but touristy for a reason. A must for any visitors to Philadelphia.
  • So touristy but a definite must go in Philadelphia. Great sign for people to take your picture. Just use caution who you ask to take your photo as there have been instances of people running off with the camera.
  • romantic spot
  • Beautiful area, the fountain is great.
