“Marymoor Park - Concert Venue”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

This review is for Marymoor as a concert venue, as a concert venue I found Marymoor very, very poorly managed. We saw Pink Martini last night. We arrived an hour before the show was to start, we had purchased reserved tickets. I don't invest in reserved tickets so I can stand in line for more than an hour to get into the venue, they need to either have a separate entrance for reserved seating or at least open the gates a minimum of two hours before the show to avoid the ridiculous log jam that resulted from opening the gates only an hour before the show was supposed to start and then putting everyone into the same line. We finally got in just before the show was starting, however, then there were also terribly long lines for food and beverage to contend with. The food trucks are a nice idea, but they are way too slow when you are only allowing an hour of open gate time prior to the show starting. Four food trucks were the only option for food. We then missed the first 5 - 6 numbers of the show waiting in line for food and drinks. Ultimately we spent more time waiting in lines than we spent actually watching Pink Martini, the show was incredibly short from my perspective, but that is another issue. My recommendation for those that have reserved seats, expect to wait in line to get in, there is not much benefit to coming early, bring your own food and go straight to your seats when you finally manage to get into the park, run to grab a beverage after the show starts. We saw a show at Chateau Ste Michelle on Friday night, they open the gates two hours prior to show time and this alone made a HUGE difference! We were able to enter, grab food and wine and get to our seats EASILY prior to the start of the show, which unlike Pink Martini was also able to start on time.

“A Great Spot to Relax”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013

If you want to walk or run or bike, or just sit and relax, Marymoor Park provides the perfect place. Even your dog will love it! You will see kid teams practicing soccer and lacrosse, and older folks playing rugby. The token parking fee makes this a budget-friendly place.

“LiveIn Redmond”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2013

Marymoor Park is lovely at any time of the year. There are bicycle paths and walking trails.
A no leash area for dogs. Interests for children. As well as walking and hiking trails. It's also nice just to be surrounded by beautiful nature. There are also concerts and other activities during the summer months as advertised in the Redmond Reporter, Seattle Times and other publications.

Used to take the kids for afternoon strolls to watch and play with the dogs on the leash free area. Play tennis/Soccer with my kids, ride the bike on the marked trails, and just hang out
