Attended a a 4 day convention here. It is very large and spread out so prepare for a lot of walking. There are plentiful rest rooms and the staff was helpful. The food stands were ridiculously expensive and of so so quality.

We were here for a volleyball tournament! Nice location! Lots of public parking near by and walk ways so you never have to go outside! There is a nice park right across the street!! Great location!

Was here for Homebrew Con 2017. A large variety of clean and comfortable event areas. Small coffee shop at entrance, would recommend bring snacks as restaurants are a 10 minute walk. Unsure on pricing.
