Eakins Oval will be permanent!

It’s early in the planning, but Eakins Oval in front of the Philadelphia Museum of Art
is slated to become a permanent public park, according to Parks & Rec spokesperson
Alain Joinville.

Since 2013, the space has transformed each summer from a bare, asphalt parking fixture
to a colorful, enlivened family entertainment zone called “The Oval.” Riding the wave
of pop-up installations, the city created the activation with the goal of making Ben
Franklin Parkway “more park, less way.” During the warmer months, the urban island
facing the Rocky Steps has been filled with attractions, from movie nights to mini

Are you excited for Eakins Oval? If you’re wondering where this beautiful tourist spot is,
it’s located at 2451 Benjamin Franklin Pkwy, Philadelphia, PA 19130.
