I love this open air concert facility. It offers a lot of flexibility for what groups can play here. I was here for a special event, but the Lawn at White River State Park summer series never fails to impress.

It was nice to have a quiet outdoor setting to walk so close to downtown. Even on a rather cool night it was a relaxing break from the "noise" of the city.
