  • What a fantastic day with my hubby. A beautiful stroll through all the gardens and the play going on was beauty and the beast-- FANTASTIC!!! We walked the memorial bridge and watched as the boats were traveling under , sat on a few benches and we had brunch at Colby's which again... fantastic, we had a fabulous waiter and it was a fantastic meal. What started as a quick trip took us for the day.. we loved it
  • My wife and I came to Prescott Park for the Wood Brothers concert. It was part of the summer concert series. If you've ever seen the Wood Bros live I don't really need to say much, as they are always awesome. I was very impressed with the park and the concert series as a whole. They do a wonderful job putting this on. Very well organized. The concession stands have a great menu. You can get anything from Ice Cream (a wide variety of quality ice creams to select from) to Curry Fries, Tacos (Fish, Chicken and Tofu), Burgers, Fish n' Chips, Funnel Cakes, Popcorn and Drinks, just to name a few. We reserved a table, which was well worth the money. We'll be going back in a couple of days for Warren Haynes and more than likely will be getting a seasons pass for next summer. I can't say enough good things about the Prescott Park Arts Festival!
