Has great day activities for children and adults. Also has fun concerts for all. Love to go there in the winter when there is not much to do outside.

Attended a community workshop & heard speakers about identify theft, sponsored by our local Congressman John Delaney. All sight lines were perfect, and we could hear the speakers in the back even without the PA system.Easy accessibility even for those with mobility impairments.

Very comfortable and the sound is great. I'm surprised more members in the community do not take advantage of the programs presented at Black Rock. So glad it is... More

Love this place. Located in the heart of Germantown. Many different classes, shows and events happening all of the time. Recently had my daughter attend their Spring Break Camp. She loved it! She's 11, a bit old I know but, we didn't want her sitting at home all day. Even though she was the oldest kid there she really enjoyed... More

I've been here for church service, and outdoor concerts. The concerts are fun, and it's a great place too come in the summer with the kids. My husband had been the the concerts in doors, and loves the artists and the venue.

I had the positive experience of a baby shower here at blackrock. It was pleasant, well lit and clean, and easy to find. I would definitely hold another party there again.

I'm not much of a wine drinker but I went to this with a friend and loved the experience! The teacher was excellent - friendly and helpful. She gave a brief history on the artist (ours was Georgia O'Keefe) and then you chose the painting you wished to copy, or be inspired by. The experience was totally engrossing and I... More

I love Black Rock center. We had so much fun there a couple of weeks ago watching a great comedy show. They made and my company feel really welcomed, and it was a great atmosphere. Would highly recommend this venue for a great fun time.

I was recently here for a wedding get together! It is very spacious and very accommodating. While there I had time to look at some of the art and classrooms there. WOW! looks fantastic! I am studying to be an art teacher so this place felt just like home for me!
