 Summer Sounds, 10-12-2012 11:14AM

By: Rod O

This is a pretty cool place, though hot in the Summer! Outdoor Venue, almost half Mall- locked and busy streets surround the rest of the property!

Music sounds good here! I have heard some pretty Great Live Jazz here!!! Sometimes they play Movies! Sometimes there is an Orchestra, though I have not seen that one.

As a Park??? Unless there is a special event, this does NOT seem like a good place to visit! I LOVE Crowds!

 Pops in The Park is an near-ideal space for outdoor festivals and concerts., 06-12-2012 10:04AM

Nice downward-sloping patch of land with plush green grass leading to a modern band shell with an adjacent pond which surrounds the performance space. With plenty of adjacent free parking, this is an near-ideal space for outdoor festivals and concerts.

As others have mentioned, this is not a park in the traditional sense. There are no picnic tables with barbecue grills adjacent to them. With the exception of a few small manicured trees, there are no forest groves of old mature trees harboring their own ecosystem. The only paths you'll find are paved with asphalt and the snake around the perimeter of the grass.

No, this is a manmade venue specifically crafted for the cantilevered bandshell at the bottom of the hill. Not too steep, well manicured grass free of rocks, exposed roots and weeds, and easy to control points of entry and exit. Perfect for the rotation of outdoor festivals that tend to dominate the community calendar during Carolina summers. An ideal setup for the Charlotte Symphony and the hordes of gourmet picnics that spring up around traditional summer pops performances.

The jaundiced eye could see this as a manufactured facade, which compliments the massive indoor retail environment that lies just behind the "park," but others are happy to get past such details and just enjoy an open space that fits its designated purpose just fine. I say, "Enjoy!"
