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

Keeps:

Robert Indiana's iconic LOVE sculpture

The central fountain

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

Adds:

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
