“Past it's glorry days”
Review of Metropolitan Park

Metropolitan Park
Ranked #37 of 175 things to do in Jacksonville
Attraction details
Reviewed 6 March 2014

MetPark was once a great performance venue. Every year they hosted the Jazz festival and the symphony starry nights series. Lately it is run down and under used. Winey neighbors across the river would love to see it shut down. With the right upgrades, this venue could improve acoustics and block much of the noise crossing the river. I would love to see it brought back to it's former glory.

Big, open venue with excellent views from anywhere in the park. Sadly, it could be used quite regularly and not even used but a few times per year. There is nothing nicer than an outdoor concert any time of the year in Jacksonville and the revenue it could bring but alas it is hardly used.

This was a good venue. Wide Open, so the first day sun and heat played a number on us, but the venue itself was very good to accommodate the huge number of festival goers. I really liked that the music stages/ areas were separate from the restrooms, food, and vendors. It gave me a chance to "chill" away from the bands. Restrooms were surprisingly well-kept. None of the disgusting things I had seen in other places after two days of heavy use.

Although it was quite warm, we purchased VIP tickets which offered seating really close to the stage, dining, cash bar and the facilities were in close proximity of our seating. You'll want to try Jacksonville's Water Taxi's, which offers another view of this historical city. Great seafood. Super nice people. Helped in a small way to makeup for the awful hotel accommodations.

The Funkfest is a Jacksonville annual event. This event is awesome. If you ever get the chance you must attend. This was my 2nd time. Great R&B music. Never a dull moment. Can't wait to find out the lineup for next year.
