Overview

The Oval+ is a seasonal pop-up outdoor public space that transforms an island of asphalt and surrounding lawns at 24th Street and the Benjamin Franklin Parkway into an eight-acre public space devoted to all-ages fun from Wednesdays through Sundays.

Located within walking distance from Parkway’s cultural attractions, including the Philadelphia Museum of Art, The Barnes Foundation and The Franklin Institute, the space becomes a pedestrian-friendly urban oasis, inviting visitors to enjoy games, outdoor movie nights, free fitness classes, mini-golf and more, five days a week!

And, certainly not to be forgotten, The Oval+ features a rotating lineup of food trucks where you can score a delicious meal or snack alongside a cold brew from the scenic outdoor beer garden.

The week gets kicked off with Wellness Wednesdays, featuring power yoga classes and kickboxing sessions. Thursdays are Arts and Culture days, when dance parties and hip-hop classes unfold along the Parkway, followed by Food and Flicks Fridays that create a weekly outdoor movie night.

On the weekends, head to the beer garden for Game Day Saturdays, featuring Quizzo and live music sessions, and Family Fun Sundays, when Let’s Rock Recess, a DJ dance party designed for kids, takes over the space.
