Park · Nature / 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.

  • We saw the symbol for the love park in all the gift shops so assumed it was a must see stop! It was small and not really worth the walk over! Stood there for a brief second for a photo that was it...  more »
  • Much smaller than we were expecting. We walked from our hotel to visit the park but once we got there we were a bit taken back about how small it was. It was cool and all just smaller than anticipated  more »
  • It was such a pretty park! The splash pad felt so nice when it was almost 90 degrees. The architecture was so pretty. It looks much better in person. If you would like to take photos you gotta be quick as it gets busy!! But people are usually considerate and fast knowing others would like to take pictures too. Great place to walk to with friends or a loved one
  • A must see spot if you are visiting Philly. It is an iconic picture opportunity. Located in an area of the city convenient to many other things to do in Philadelphia. We had a water ice from a local food truck. Love water ice.
