Create an itinerary including Love Park
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.

  • The Love Park In Philadelphia, also known as the John F. Kennedy Plaza, has two iconic signs -- the Love installation and the I ❤️ Philly. What I love is a visitor can pose next to one of these signs and the photo will come out nicely. The signs do much of the work. There is a Love Park Fountain which is refreshing for kids during the warm months. The best pictures are on a summer day even if overcast and the colors will come out vibrant. I went in the summer and late fall. The late fall photos struggle with the reds. More grass and seating areas would enhance this park. Maybe have an artistic competition where people can submit designs for benches. Trees would be good to take on some of the heat, but would block the views of the lovely buildings. Maybe put a cluster of trees off to the side where visitors can go for respite. It's a hot park in warm months with the heat bouncing off the cement and stone.
  • A simple must visit park in Philadelphia. Has the icon LOVE icon that's Philadelphia is known for. Park is always lively from people just hanging out, kids playing in the water, and various small events. It's nice to visit whether during the day or evening. It was still crowded around 11p and felt safe with the crowds. Great place to relax and take in the sights and sounds of downtown Philadelphia.
