ABOUT NEW CENTER PARK:
New Center Park is a unique green space located on the southwest corner of Second Avenue and West Grand Boulevard across from the Fisher Building.

Renovation of this existing “pocket park” into a flexible outdoor concert, activity and concession venue (1200 person capacity) and seasonal programming will begin on June 4th and continue throughout the summer.
With an Alfresco Cafe Menu and Full Bar, New Center Park is available for Private Rentals and is actively identifying Sponsors for 2011′s 90 Shows!!
Food and beverage purchases support the free activities and free entertainment in New Center Park, so come hungry, come thirsty! Sorry NO outside food or beverage permitted during programming.
