What a great location and a great place to watch a live band in an small outdoor venue type feel. Lots of food trucks, merchandise stands and lots of park to walk around and explore. Definitely had a great evening there! Prices for parking at the event were perfectly reasonable @ $5 and with lots to do around the town you can make a day of it or even a weekend getaway

Great venue, not sure if there was a bad seat in the house. Overall I thought it was great. Of course I went to see Lindsey Stirling... so I had a blast! I love the "lawn seating" idea too, adds a little informal fun to any show!

Went for first time last night to sold out concert and left after half an hour as we could not see stage, screens and acoustics were so horrible that we were guessing what songs we were listening to because sound was so muffled. It took us over an hour and a half to get into park with line up and the parking lot we parked in was accessible by a long trail that had absolutely no lighting whatsoever. If we had stayed for the concert, it would've been dangerous. So disappointed that organizers knew this night had been sold out and didn't think to at least add more screens and speakers so it could've been enjoyable from all parts of the park. Considering these Tuesday night concerts have been going on for years, we couldn't believe that all these glitches have not been addressed. We thought it was a good deal to buy tickets in advance for $12 but what we purchased was a view of the Brock Monument in Canada.

Amazing venue and super fun time! Great concerts... easy crossing from Canada to the US... definitely recommend. Don't get lawn seats though... my experience is that general admission is the way to go, or else upgrade to better seating than lawns.

More like fart park. The only way to actually be able to see the concert you paid for is to pay for upgraded seats. If you are in general admission, you can’t even see the stage. The sound was also better outside the venue than the general admission space. This place was so packed that when I got there, there was no where to be able to sit or stand. Plus, it’s so hard to get to because it’s backed up for miles. If you are going there for a not even close to sold out event, I bet it’s fine. But if you event is almost sold out, don’t go.
