Not what expected but good!

I thought the LOVE sculpture would be bigger but around it is very beautiful! I love the water place people can walk through very cooling!

Stopping here is a great Philly photo opp but, that is about it. The park "is" currently being renovated and the statue has been temporarily relocated. This is a nice park to visit during the Christmas season when it hosts a Christmas Village with snacks, ciders, cocoa and adult beverages to sample while you shop.

The sign is a lot smaller than expected, but it's the original. Other cities have larger one that are more familiar.

Nice little place to sit and people watch. Great for kids too. The fountains were a big hit and lots of places to sit.

Just the sign and a fountain. Not much really to comment on. Take a photo and move on. I think they might be renovating the area.

Got a great photo in front of the Love sign....it is now located across the street since construction is being done at the park. A really nice guard took our picture. Pretty cool!

So I went downtown Philly to find that the LOVE park is undergoing some work and the LOVE statue was moved to the plaza just outside city hall. No worries, easy to get a picture with the LOVE.

The place was super crowded. Nearly impossible to get a picture in front of the sculpture and it was TINY. Don't go out of your way for this.
