  1. I will not be attending anything at this park due to the lack of free and accessible parking. I wasted hours trying to find handicap parking when this park first opened; never again.

  2. I’m sorry, Bea. Have you been successful in finding free parking for other Uptown events and venues? I’m not aware of any free parking Uptown but if there is some I’d love to share that information with readers.

  3. Hi Jodi,

    Do you know how bands are booked for this concert series? We have an 80’s Rock Band playing various places in Huntersville, Mooresville and Lake Norman area. Appreciate any info.



  4. I’m sorry, I don’t know. Maybe start with the Parks & Rec Dept.
