City Park ~ Bandshell Concert Series

14 Jul

As many of you know last night was the first night of the Bandshell Concert Series located at City Park in Reading PA. Being a free, family oriented event we decided to make the short drive.

Location: City Park- Hill Rd & Constitution Way, Reading, PA 19602. You will see a giant band-shell !

Accessibility: Strollers, wagons, baby carriers or whatever floats your boat ! Parking is on either side of the roads surrounding the park, while it may be difficult to find a spot if you arrive later then 6:30pm for a 7pm concert, no one really has to park more then a block or two away. The Bandshell area is located on a grassy incline with a paved path around the outside. No matter where you are in the park you will have a view of the bandshell !

Ages: this is definitely an all ages event. The majority of the people who were in attendance were either retirement age or younger couples with small children. The music and environment was much more fun then expected.

Amenities: The Bandshell concert series features a number of different food and drink vendors that are located towards the back of the park. They also have trash/recycling throughout the park and portable bathrooms (at least for the concert series).

Additional info: I would strongly suggest bringing chairs or blankets to sit on ! There is also a moat…yes I said moat ! that surrounds the bandshell. If you are sitting down in front ( where there are many people dancing) please be aware that there is water there and if your child is like mine they will be gunning to get in !!!

While City Park is located in the City of Reading it feels like it is worlds away. The Bandshell Concert Series is a wonderful, free, family friendly event taking place on Friday nights at 7pm.

    We were there too, daring to dance even with the moat tempting us!
