Oval+ Open on the Parkway for Summer ’18

July 20, 2018 - August 19, 2018

Event Navigation

Friday July 20 through Sunday, August 19, The Oval+ officially opens for four weeks! A portion of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway has been transformed into a grand and colorful promenade with the theme, More PARK, More PLAY.

Philadelphia-based urban design firm PORT planned and developed installations for The Oval+. This year’s installation offers a collection of playful, over-scaled urban furnishings anchoring the Oval’s midway.

This public furniture includes an 800-square-foot sandbox, a four-tiered seating platform with views of the Philadelphia Museum of Art and City Hall.
