THis is a nice venue especially during festivals, etc. The Do Wop and Rod festival will be coming soon and will showcase cars along the river. During the summer , free live music events happen every Friday night. Across the street from a Courtyard Hotel

This is a great place to jog or take a stroll. We enjoyed the concert that took place Friday night and was very conveniently located by the Sheraton Four points hotel.
