I had been to Philadelphia probably 25 times before I finally got to Love Park also known as JFK Plaza. There really isn’t much to do except to pose for a bunch of pictures. There is a gift shop in the park, but I didn’t feel the need to visit it. Everyone wants their picture taken with the giant LOVE statue. Even though it was freezing out there were several groups of people waiting to take a picture. We waited and finally were able to be alone with the statue. Every time I have walked by since then I always see groups of people huddled around the statue. The spot is also very popular with brides who like to pose with their grooms and bridal party in front of the statue.
Across the street there is a municipal building with a plaza outside of it. The plaza is filled with boardgame parts. There are pieces of Monopoly, Sorry, Dominoes, Chess, and Checkers. The plaza is a lot of fun and we enjoyed posing with the different pieces. Sometimes there are homeless hanging out here, but they don’t bother anyone.
