When I visited the previous spring it was an enjoyable park to stop at, take some pictures, and soak in the atmosphere of Philadelphia. But when I returned in December there was a Christmas Village going on that made the park so crowded it was nearly impossible to even move. We tried to explore a little bit but it took... More

This is a really nice park and was full of hustle and bustle when I visited it on a lovely hot Sunday afternoon. The sculpture is nice to see but I was expecting it to be bigger - perhaps because I've seen the version in New York. Still a great place to visit though. If you want your photo taking... More

One of my favorite places in the US. Enjoyed strolling and enjoying an afternoon watching people come and go. I felt the "love".

I can honestly say pictures make it seem so big. Thank goodness I was staying at a local hotel that knew exactly where it was. Very small on top of a steel stool. Don't know when they are moving it, so make sure and ask before going.

We visited this sign just today and just realized it has been temporarily moved to City Hall. Nonetheless, it is something to see if you're seeing the city. Cute!

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.
