“also known as JFK Plaza”

Built in 1965, the park sits atop an underground parking garage. The park was dedicated John F. Kennedy Plaza in 1967 after the 35th President of the United States. The main features of the plaza include curved granite steps and a majestic fountain added in 1969. The nickname LOVE Park comes from the LOVE sculpture which overlooks the plaza pictured below. The world famous LOVE sculpture, designedby Robert Indiana, was first placed in the plaza as part of the United States' Bicentennial Celebration in 1976 . It was removed in 1978, but the sculpture was missed and the Chairman of Philadelphia Art Commission, F. Eugene Dixon, Jr., bought the sculpture and permanently placed it in the plaza as a gift to Philadelphia. What was once the Philadelphia Visitors Center now houses the Fairmount Park Welcome Center, featuring information about the Fairmount Park system, the Fairmount Park Welcome Center Gallery and the LOVE Gift shop.

Classic photo spot. Watch out for the 'friendly' folks who offer to take your photo... Then ask for a 'donation'.
