Love going to concerts and festivals at Metropolitan Park! The setting is beautiful and there are covered benched on the river plus permanent restrooms and paved paths. The acoustics are not bad and the stage is more visible than most that do not have built-in...More

This is a beautiful park, very relaxing and very clean. You can stroll through the park, sit by the waters edge and just enjoy the beauty that surrounds you.

We have been to this park for several local events. It is on the water and parking is close. Bathrooms were large and fairly clean.

We went to the park to catch some Pokémon. The park has many benches and landscaping. It was an awesome place to Pokémon hunt.

Great place to go for a date, family gathering, business, or just site seeing on the river, take a boat to the Southside of river. Things are really growing down there with shops, restaurants, living downtown
