    JFK Plaza has transformed into a mecca for music, food and art! Free concerts, the best food trucks in Philly & very cool art displays! Yarn bombed lamp posts to iconic photo ops, what's not to LOVE?

    Take a picture with the LOVE sculpture. If it's too crowded, go to the back of the sculpture and take a selfie - it'll be just as good 😁

    JFK Plaza is commonly known as "Love Park" because of Robert Indiana's "Love" sculpture. The water in the Love Fountain is dyed various colors throughout the year to celebrate certain events

    Once films of skaters at LOVE Park found their way to California, pro skaters moved to Philly just to skate in LOVE everyday. http://99percentinvisible.org/episode/episode-71-in-and-out-of-love/

    In 2002, this park was guarded by a uniformed officer 24/7 in order to prevent skateboarding. Despite these efforts, Love Park is still a skateboarding Mecca

    Iconic part of town. On any given day, you will share the path with many tourists. Look for the food trucks to grab something to eat while walking.

    From hand-crafted pizza to slow-cooked BBQ and more, Love Park's a hot weekday lunchtime spot for exceptional food truck offerings.

    Not much about this "park" is good. I've lived in Philadelphia for years now and I never had the urge to go sit in Love Park. It smells like piss all the time.

    A simple tourist attraction in the heart of philadelphia. Always people taking pictures in front of the LOVE sign. Much smaller than I thought it would be but still nice to see when in town.

    May want to wait till the work is done. This is currently being rennovated. From what I hear the iconic LOVE sculpture is in Dilworth Plaza by City Hall
