PHOTOS: Skateboarders Take Final Spins, Spills at LOVE Park

Jeff Fusco was on the scene Friday as scores of skaters took their final runs at the park they made famous.

This week Mayor Jim Kenney announced that skating would be allowed at LOVE Park one last time before it’s closed for a massive overhaul. Dan McQuade wrote about why all Philadelphians should mourn the loss of the space as a skating mecca, calling LOVE “an under-utilized city park turned into something great by skaters.” Photographer Jeff Fusco braved the cold to capture the scene as many skaters take their final spins.
