There are always many reasons to visit Philadelphia and to #StaySonesta at Sonesta Philadelphia Rittenhouse Square, and this summer, the new and improved LOVE Park is one of them. The iconic LOVE Park, which gets its nickname from Robert Indiana’s LOVE statue first placed there for the United States Bicentennial in 1976, has been undergoing a face lift that will soon be revealed.

What can you look forward to when you visit the new LOVE Park?


The updated design includes a great lawn and two gardens, seating areas, a new fountain with a monumental jet and up-lighting. The park will also welcome visitors with a variety of new activities and events including food truck days for “Lunch in LOVE”, which will feature cafe chairs and tables to create an outdoor food court in warmer months. Games, performances, and a new restaurant will also be added to the park.

Sonesta Philadelphia is a proud member of Friends of LOVE Park and is working with the  group to provide support for the updates to the park as well as ongoing maintenance. Friends of LOVE Park will hold their inaugural fundraising event on May 30 in the form of the first party at the newly redesigned park, and a stay at Sonesta Philadelphia is one of the raffle prizes up for grabs.

Philadelphia is known and loved for its green spaces and art, and Sonesta Philly is an art hotel located within walking distance to Rittenhouse Square, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and many other well-known museums and attractions. Be sure to add LOVE Park to your Philadelphia itinerary the next time you visit!
