Though its official name is JFK Plaza, the open space near Philadelphia’s City Hall is more commonly known as LOVE Park.

With its sleek granite benches, geometric raised planter beds, and long expanses of pavement, its success as a pedestrian plaza is debatable.

But it turned out to be perfect for skateboarding.

As skateboarding culture grew in the 1990s, LOVE Park became a Mecca of the skating world—even though skateboarding was officially banned there.

Skateboarder and radio producer Andrew Norton takes us for a ride through the surprising history of LOVE Park, and pulls back the curtain on a decades-old battle over public space in Philadelphia and beyond.
