Hang Out At The Oval This Month In Philly!

The Oval

The Oval in Benjamin Franklin Parkway, Philly

As your Philly real estate team, we’re here to fill you in on the coolest places to hang out this summer in Philadelphia! We’ve already filled you in on Blue Cross RiverRink Summerfest, Spruce Street Harbor Park and places in Philly to stay cool. Now, let’s talk about The Oval, Benjamin Franklin Parkway’s outdoor pop-up space!

The Oval, just steps away from the Philadelphia Museum of Art that we love so much, will hang around from now until Aug. 20, Wednesdays through Sundays. Within the eight acres of space, you can enjoy art installations, activities, movie nights, concerts, games, food trucks, free fitness classes, a tree-shaded beer garden and so much more!

If art is what you seek, check out the all-new art installation, which will help people envision the future of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway in three open-air ‘rooms’ with different subjects, along with a new ground mural and an immersive maze!

Free fitness classes will kick off as part of ‘Wellness Wednesdays’ and will include free yoga, Zumba and kickboxing classes from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursdays are deemed ‘arts and culture Thursdays’ with a DJ dance party each night, 7 to 11 p.m. Free movies will be shown on a big, outdoor screen on Friday nights from 9 to 11 p.m. ‘Hidden Figures’ is coming up on July 28th, followed by ‘Up’ on Aug. 4.

The Oval is also home to oversized games, such as checkers and chess, each night of the week, along with a splash park. So stay cool and have some old-fashioned fun while checking out the area!

Another way to stay cool is to hang out in the tree-shaded beer garden. Choose from beer, wine, cocktails and a selection of hot food items, and enjoy al fresco style under the trees! The beer garden will host Game Day Saturdays, with live music, Quizzo and more. There will also be a variety of food trucks to choose from, with everything from tacos to cupcakes.

The Oval is just one of many events to look forward to in Philly. There is no shortage of cool places to hang out or events to attend during the summer season! Other upcoming events to know about include Shakespeare in Clark Park July 26-30 and XPoNential Music Festival at BB&T Pavilion July 28-30. Once August arrives, there will be a whole new list of events to look forward to!
