Performance Lawn


Construction on the Performance Lawn is now complete. The Performance Lawn and the section of Greenway that runs through the area are now reopened to the public. Please note the Performance Lawn and Greenway will be closed during Special Events. Take a look at our Events Calendar to learn more about those dates.

Greater in size than two football fields, the Performance Lawn is a carefully maintained open area providing a natural amphitheater-like setting perfect for concerts, festivals, parties and other special events. The south end of the Lawn features an acre of reinforced turf, which will support portable stages, motor vehicle traffic and concertgoers. The venue is encircled by a fence and has three gates affording controlled access into the site. Electricity and water are readily accessible to meet the needs of event planners. Ample restroom facilities are located nearby.
