Just across the street from the imposing structure that is City Hall, you arrive at Fairmont Park. We passed through not far from noon on a sunny day.When the weather is sunny and mild, this is of course perfect touring weather! We lucked out in our five days in Philly; just one afternoon of rain and the rest was gorgeous.
On this particular September day, everyone and his brother seemed to be out… If you are ever in town, do have a stroll here. And, if you are very courageous, you can continue on up to JFK Boulevard towards the museum( like in my earlier posts).
Passing through blooming flowers. There is City Hall on the other side.
Looking towards the city side.
We found in the park this decorated stage with a sound system. What??
A noon-time dance class!
This world-famous statue is the love statue by Robert Indiana. It thrones proudly here in Fairmont park. This happens to be my favorite modern monument in North America. I just love it and its tender leaning “O”. It is not the only statue of its kind; there are others around the world.
But, this is very fitting to have it here. After all, Philadelphia is called the “City of brotherly love”.
Love is what makes the world go around…
Check out those two below; we don’t need to tell them what it’s about!
See you soon xo
