What a nice park, we stopped here on our way back from visiting Independence hall, and the Liberty Bell.

...the park is basically a construction area...and the sign is a little small...after the magic gardens of Philadelphia...another "tourist attraction point" that will definitely disappoint...

We went by on our way to the Art Museum and had to stop for the photos, of both the LOVE and the AMOR statues. Philadelphia is truly an amazing city, and everyone seems to truly embody the “brotherly love” ambience. So many smiley faces and helpful strangers.

Homeless people? What homeless people? I didn't even see any last time I was there for the Philadelphia Christmas Market. It was a very pleasant time, with McDonald's-ified versions of many international treats like traditionallike french crêpes, authentish döner kebabs, reheated belgee-I-wish-the-employee-working-the-stand-gave-a-flying-fig-an waffles (AKA liege-ish waffles), and hot $5 cocoa to wash it all down.

Even with the cheesy knock-off versions of the aforementioned foods, the market does offer legitimate German-made traditional Christmas items. Principal among them are the Weihnachtspyramide (Christmas pyramids with the vanes on top that spin if you light candles below), Schwibbögen (hand-carved Christmas arches), and Räuchermannl (wooden figures that appear to be smoking pipes when you burn an incense cone in their bellies). Several of the event staff are actually German, and speak German, which is very refreshing to hear.

The park itself has undergone significant renovation, including removal of the fountain. I can't guarantee that you will not not be unaccosted by people who make this park tbeir semi-permanent residence, but go check it out anyway; it's worth a gander. Just don't go alone at night. It can get a wee bit less than comfortable if you're not used to dealing with the kids of folks you find out on the streets at times of day or night, when those who are fortunate have homes are aldeady inside, battened down for the night. Just bring a few friends along, and you should have a fine time. :-)

Also, it's fun to go around the corner, & visot the giant clothes-pin. And don't drive, there's practically nowhere to park close by, unless you want to pay...

We were on a Hop-On Hop-Off tour bus and we stopped off at Love Park to take a break, it was a lovely day, truly enjoyed the park and surroundings. They did have a band playing as well.
