Perfect place to go to enjoy music and the outdoors. You can choose the comfort of seats or the freedom of the lawn where you find your own spot.

I went to Five Finger Death Punch and Breaking Benjamin. I was in the second row. The view was amazing. The bathrooms were in a good proximity to the seating and the bar lines were not too terribly long. Overall great experience.
