Save the date for the opening of The Oval+ presented by PNC! Every summer since 2013, Fairmount Park Conservancy and Philadelphia Parks & Recreation have transformed Eakins Oval – eight acres of public space at the base of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway – into The Oval, the new ‘Park on the Parkway’ with programming and activities for people of all ages.

Kick-off day programming includes:
* Music and entertainment from radio stations, including Boom 103.9, Ben FM, and Radio One
* A reading and music room
* A screening of Black Panther at 9pm

Plus, explore new features like the MAKE, HEAR, and PLAY sections along the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, and our regular, popular features at Eakins Oval, like food trucks and the beer garden.
