    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.

    Great free and benefit concerts. Artists always put on a great show in this unique spot. No bad views or acoustics either.

    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!

    Always a great place for a show

    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.

    Grab a blanket, food and concealed wine - just in case you can't get in. You can catch tunes on the outside grass.

    The security didn't let us take "cans" inside...WTF? So my friends had to throw out cans...this is BS. Why can't we drink our own drinks? Besides we saw people with cans inside. Wth?

    Ann Hwang · August 12, 2013

    So security insisted they take the batteries so I couldn't use my camera.Everyone in here has a camera and some have monopods!!! Bastids! · August 11, 2013

    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.
