"Park on the Parkway"

2013-07-30 11.14.10

This summer the Philadelphia Parks & Recreation department has revamped eight acres of space at the base of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway into a "park on the parkway" called The Oval!  This beautiful space looks straight to the famous stairs of the Philadelphia Museum of Art and is a unique outdoor space that is open Tuesday through Sunday 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.!  Each day there is a different programming theme so this week I was there for Wellness Tuesdays.  There are also all different food trucks and outdoor actvities set up so you can really spend awhile chilling out here.  I was blow away by the the colorful space and did not feel like I was in the middle of the city.  This park will only be open until August 18th so I highly recommend anyone in Philadelphia to go check it out!
