Goodbye Love Park.

I have spent many days and nights here, just relaxing and watching the fountain flow.

I have heard of the history of love park and appreciated it so.

I have always enjoyed staring past the Love sign, down the parkway and at the art museum…

Love Park we will miss you.

In case you didn’t know, the city of Philadelphia has decided to demolish Love Park, stating, “There are many other attractions in the city that people enjoy more”. And on a business note, stating “it just isn’t cost-effective to use a space that large for something useless”

The city has decided to build another office complex where the current Love Park stands, and its surrounding area, to complement the parking garage already implemented underground directly beneath Love Park.

This is leaked news, and has not been publicly announced, as the city expects a large disagreement from its dwellers. Plans are scheduled to begin within the year, where a destruction ceremony will take place looking back on the history of the park, and looking forward to the future of thriving industry in central Philadelphia.
