Lily loves to take long walks in the City of Philadelphia. One of our favorite places to visit is Love Park. Recently we became Facebook Friends of Love Park. We think this is cool. Now we receive announcements of upcoming events and news of interest related to the park.
One of the best parts about Love Park is that it has a hip, pop culture history. It was (and still is) a haven for skate boarders. It attracts tourists, Center City lunchers, wi-fi users, homeless folks, photographers, rap artists, dogs (like Sadie and Lily), and splashing kids. Many of these groups are not supposed to use the park but still do. Therein lies what is cool about Love Park.
We are fans of Youtube videos from its glory days as an international skateboard destination. Philadelphians attribute the arrival of the X-Games to the city as a direct result of its global distinction as a skateboarders hot spot. Some call Love Part the world's greatest natural skateboard park because of its modernistic, hard edged sixties architectural style. See for yourself, here is some popular Youtube footage of the park in use by skateboarding greats.
