About the Smith Memorial Arch:

Built on the former grounds of the 1876 Centennial Exposition, the Smith Memorial Arch serves as a gateway to West Fairmount Park. The Memorial consists of two colossal columns supported by curving, neo-Baroque arches, and adorned with 13 individual portrait sculptures (2 equestrians, 3 figures, and 8 busts); two eagles standing on globes; and architectural reliefs of 8 allegorical figures.

The Fairmount Park Conservancy is a non-profit organization that exists to champion the Fairmount Park system. All guests of GLOW in the Park will receive an annual Membership to the Conservancy (at the $35 level). For more information on the Fairmount Park Conservancy please visit
