Love Park, Philadelphia

3.2
#4 of 17 in Parks in Philadelphia
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.

  • This is a cool part of the urban but the homelessness and the junkies infuse the experience with a front of sad.  more »
  • Famous sculptures in the Town Hall square. On the base of the cavity, as seen in limbo and scenery behind the familiar and lovely.

  • This was my first visit to love park and the Christmas village was open, it was great I loved it they had tons of gifts from all over the world, this wasn't your typical craft show with the same old junk that you see everywhere. I got some really great gifts and some great food as well. I will make the trip next year for sure.
  • Great to to see the Christmas village back in Love Park. The restorations are almost complete. Great atmosphere and shops setup. Plenty of merchants selling lots items from local small businesses. Great food and drink. The German Shop of Christmas ornaments is something you have to visit when there.
  • Went here to enjoy the German Christmas Market, it really was beautiful! There was traditional food to eat and many different cultures that intermingled. Tons of unique gifts to buy, I loved it.
  • Looks like the construction is finally finished! All the Christmas shops are set up and it looks great! I've watched the remodel for months and months and months, and the only thing missing is the fountain. Not sure what the story is there, but it looks really good. Can't wait to see it without all the shops to see what it really looks like.
  • The Christmas Village is amazing. If you don't visit this year be sure to do so next year. There's something for everyone. It opens right after Thanksgiving.
