Love Park aka JFK Plaza
One last full day in Philadelphia takes me along Benjamin Franklin Parkway starting with JFK Plaza better known as LOVE Park for the iconic sculpture designed by Robert Indiana. Thought park was built in 1965 the sculpture was not added to plaza until 1976 for the celebration of the United States Bicentennial.
The plaza is named for John F. Kennedy who served as President of the United States from 1961 until his assassination in 1963. The plaza itself originally served as a terminus for the parkway and covers an underground parking garage.
