For your comfort, you may bring blankets, low chairs (under 3′ height), tarps and pillows. Canopies, umbrellas or EZ-ups are permitted UNTIL the concert starts. Once the announcements begin, you must take these items down. You may NOT use stakes to keep your blankets in place as they are a safety hazard. There are to be no grills or open flames of any kind in the park. Food and non-alcoholic beverages are permitted and we encourage you to visit our food court on the west end for more options. Please keep animals tethered and respect your neighbors by being mindful of your space and the view of others.
