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...

Soundgarden was excellent and so was the setup for Rockville. Lots of bathrooms and food and drink with no wait. Nice location... close to lots of parking and easy to Uber. Con: VERY dusty and sandy. No seating or shelter for non-VIP pass holders. Long hot day standing

Love going to concerts and festivals at Metropolitan Park! The setting is beautiful and there are covered benched on the river plus permanent restrooms and paved paths. The acoustics are not bad and the stage is more visible than most that do not have built-in seating. This is a grass covered park so you bring your own chair or just... More

Welcome to Rockville was awesome and this park has a ton of space and well-maintained facilities, to make a festival that size work. True, the bands made the day great, but the people were fantastic, the lavatories surprisingly clean and the security quite good. I will admit though, its hard to get out of the sun and there isn't a... More

This is a beautiful park, very relaxing and very clean. You can stroll through the park, sit by the waters edge and just enjoy the beauty that surrounds you.

We have been to this park for several local events. It is on the water and parking is close. Bathrooms were large and fairly clean.

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

Great place to go for a date, family gathering, business, or just site seeing on the river, take a boat to the Southside of river. Things are really growing down there with shops, restaurants, living downtown
