    Any concert here is good! Inside the park, great vibes, and amazing music. Free concerts: thank you NY! Hungry? Try the tacos and the ice cream.

    It's smaller than I thought. Stage itself is a good size and I like that it's turf grass for sitting.

    It's a small venue - so make sure if your going to any of the concerts in the summer, make sure you get there early. Lines are extremely long!

    If you don't want to wait in line to get in the venue, the giant rock near the line is both comfortable and close enough to the music. But beware: you may encounter extremely talented hoolahoopers.

    Bring a blanket. Bring snacks. Bring sunblock. Bring cash (the vendors dont take credit cards and the ATM fee is criminal). Use expert level concealment tactics for your vices.
