This was my 4th Rockville in row. The location is wonderful right on the river.

Ample parking, beautiful grounds. I know that it takes a lot of work to clean up after a massive concert like that and come Sunday every year it looks just as nice as Saturday so I must commend them on that.

I will however, say that the sidewalks need some major repairs - almost looks an earthquake has heaved them cracked and at different levels.

PLEASE.... bring the Jacksonville Jazz Festival back to Metro Park!!! No one wants to sit on hot streets or parking lots! It used to be wonderful....a rite of spring.....sit out on the hill, listen to great music....you could sit there all day. WHY WAS IT MOVED TO DOWNTOWN???

A giant open area set up for Rockville music festival with 3 stages. Decent security, excellent on-site medical teams, and friendly event staff

We went to the park to catch some Pokémon. The park has many benches and landscaping. It was an awesome place to Pokémon hunt.

This was a nice place to go walk and see the water but there is no playground any longer which was the whole reason we went.

Came to J-vile to attend Welcome To Rockville at Metropolitan Park. The park itself was enormous, and I imagine when not being used by 25,000+ patrons watching a heavy metal concert festival...that it's truly a gorgeous place. The Marina was beautiful, but the water was dirty. Lots of trash floating near the shoreline. Saw a beautiful old-fashioned pirate ship docked, and noticed that it has historical performances aboard as well. Would have been neat to see. Overall, a really nice place.

MetPark was once a great performance venue. Every year they hosted the Jazz festival and the symphony starry nights series. Lately it is run down and under used. Winey neighbors across the river would love to see it shut down. With the right upgrades, this venue could improve acoustics and block much of the noise crossing the river. I would love to see it brought back to it's former glory.
