The "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia" Atlas

Love Park

As Seen In: "Charlie Goes America All Over Everybody's Ass" (Season 2)
Location: 16th St. and JFK Blvd.

During the second season, Charlie gets uncomfortably patriotic and goes on an anti-smoking crusade. His crazed quest leads him to an anti-smoking rally at JFK Plaza, better known as Love Park.

Located in Center City, the park's nickname comes from Robert Indiana's famous Love sculpture. Built in 1965, the park is diagonal to City Hall and was branded the John F. Kennedy Plaza in 1967. The sculpture was added to the plaza in 1976 as part of the United State's Bicentennial celebration. It was removed in 1978, but people loved it so much that it was purchased and made a permanent part of the park that same year. Over the years, the park became an international (and controversial) skateboarding hot-spot, leading to Philly hosting the X Games in 2001 and 2002.
