Love is Great, "LOVE" is OK

Smaller than expected, "hustlers" posing as tourists offered to take our picture, then asked for donation. Concert going on, he and his wife probably cleaned up!

I was so excited to bring my daughters here, however I was so disappointed with how SMALL the actual piece is! Pictures are very deceiving. We walked right past it at first. We saw it and we were over it in a minute. Nothing else really that exciting to do in the area.

Nothing wrong with walking by to see the famous sculpture by Robert Indiana or nothing wrong with a quick hop off a tour bus to do the same. You probably won't be overcome with awe, but while you are in this great neighborhood, pass by and give this a glance.

They had moved the LOVE sign to a different park because of renovations to the park. We had no idea just how small the sign is, I know that isn't a big deal but it was a little underwhelming for us.

Designed by Robert Indiana, the sculpture spells out 'Love'. It is one of the sites we visited on our hop on hop off tour. We learned that Indiana did not have a trademark on the sculpture so he never got any royalties from it. It sits in a corner of a large piazza near a water fountain park, it makes... More

Love Park is within walking distance to Reading Terminal Market, City Hall and numerous other sites to see in Philly. Get your camera ready.

It is a free site - it is a small sign so don't be shocked. It is conveniently located though so see it when you are doing other sites. Walk through city hall - visit sign and leave - yeah I was shocked - sketchy at night for sure:( But thankfully I did not run in to any issues.

It's only small but the word says it all. You have to have your picture taken by it! It's a lovely spot with nearby cafe and seating. Kids running in and out of nearby water fountains. Lovely experience on a warm Philadelphia afternoon.

The sign was much much smaller than I imagined. It is dwarfed but the size of square in which it resides and the fountain behind it. But it is a must do while in Philly. Luckily it is on or near the hop on hop off bus route.
