Remaking LOVE

Mayor Nutter and Council President Darrell L. Clarke's agreement on LOVE Park calls for changes.

It does away with:

Clarke's seven-restaurant concept

Hard, terraced surfaces


Robert Indiana's iconic LOVE sculpture

The central fountain

JFK Plaza's diagonal orientation, aligning it with the Parkway


Dedicated space for concessions

More green space

Flatter design, with access to the park on all four sides

Bigger and better "horticultural displays"

On the bubble:

The spaceship-like Fairmount Park Welcome Center
