  • The Oval+ 2017 Season!
    • oval 500h yee 8414 20140716

    Formerly a large parking lot, Eakins Oval is back for a fifth summer season with Oval +, an interactive park experience conviently located right in the middle of the world famous Benjamin Franklin Parkway!


    Philadelphia's “Park on the Parkway” will be open with extended hours July 20th through August 20th for the 2017 season with new expansions, including a massively ambitious art installation that "[encourages] visitors to imagine how much more fully the Parkway could be used as a public space."


    Oval+ this year will have giant Legos, 24-ft art installations, outdoor movie screenings, fitness programs, 9-hole mini golf and more--you don't want to miss out on your chance to enjoy a city favorite!
