John F. Kennedy Plaza a.k.a. Love Park is a plaza situated across from City Hall and the brainchild of former City Planner Edmund Bacon and designed by architect Vincent Kling who wanted to create a gateway to the Ben Franklin Parkway, Fairmount Park and points beyond.  Built in 1965, the park sits atop an underground garage and was originally dedicated as the John F Kennedy Plaza in 1967.  The Plaza features curved granite steps and beautiful fountain.  The nickname LOVE Park comes from the world famous LOVE sculpture, designed by Robert Indiana, created for the United States’ Bicentennial Celebration in 1976.
