Eakins Oval Play Park

Philly Parks and Rec are set to unveil next month the newest product for "More Park Less Way" along the Benjamin Franklin Parkway.  The department released plans for its makeover of Eakins Oval.  The new park will occupy the space in the center of the oval that has most recently served as a parking lot.  This project is part of a long-range plan to make the Parkway more inviting to pedestrians and neighbors.

Designers at LRSLAstudio broke up the park into three major elements; and urban beach, a game area and an outdoor food truck cafe with a portable stage at its end.  The beach will also include sandboxes for children.  The game area features life-size chess and checkers boards with game pieces, a large Twister mat and facilities for bag toss, table tennis and other amenities.  The stage will offer the area as a use to outdoor concerts and performances.
