So far this summer, Philadelphia has yet to disappoint in entertaining it’s visitors and locals. There are so many wonderful things to do in the city, who needs to get away? Philly features many parka and pop up entertainment spots that almost make you feel like you’re on vacation. One of the many things we love about Philadelphia is The Oval!
Philly’s new “Park on the Parkway” has returned for its second season on the Ben Franklin Parkway. The Oval transforms 24th Street and the Parkway into an eight-acre public space devoted to summertime fun.
Located within walking distance from the Philadelphia Museum of Art, The Barnes Foundation and The Franklin Institute, the Oval is an park that almost makes you feel like you’ve been transported out of the busy city streets into a relaxing oasis of fun.
The Oval opened this year on July 16th and runs until August 17th (Wednesday through Sunday). It will host daily free live entertainment, educational programming, food trucks and a beer garden! Be sure to make it out to the free movie nights, concerts, and Quizzo with Johnny Goodtimes.
The park features a giant games of chess, checkers, Jenga and Connect Four in the outdoor space and fill-up on tasty dishes from local food trucks like Foolish Waffles, Guerrilla Ultima and Lil’ Pop Shop.
