The much-anticipated renovations at Philadelphia's LOVE Park officially began last month with a groundbreaking ceremony. Attended by Mayor Jim Kenney along with other city officials, the ceremony marks the start of the year-long upgrading process that will temporarily close the park. During construction, however, the beloved LOVE statue by Robert Indiana will still be available for residents and visitors to enjoy at Dilworth Park, another KieranTimberlake project that was completed this past summer.
Once completed, the redesigned LOVE Park will be include a new fountain, a café, and additional green space. The existing and iconic features of the park, such as the "Flying Saucer" Welcome Center, will receive energy-efficient updates while becoming ADA accessible.
