Cozy little stadium with only good seats. Has a European feel and the crowd is diverse. Decent variety of food and drink. 30 minutes from downtown but not convenient from a public transport standpoint... read more »
Overall a great place to take the family to catch some soccer. Toyota Park is a nice medium sized stadium. Parking lot could use paving. The Chicago Fire used to be a great soccer club by American sta... read more »
Game was delayed by 100 minutes because of local thunderstorm and open stadium with metal seats..yikes!! Plenty of food and drink available around the stadium. Just a pity the standard of play was dir... read more »
Cool venue for concerts. However, $20 to park is ridiculous! If this place were accessible to public transportation, I would understand the parking fee but when driving is the option, $20 daily for a 3-day concert it is fairly steep. The parking fee was my only issue. The bathrooms were clean, which is always an issue at other venues. No bathroom lines!! Now, to get a drink, it was hit or miss. Day 1, I was in line for about 5-7 minutes (switched concession stands because they were not moving at the 1st concession stand), total time 10 minutes. Day 2, no line. Day 3, the parking fee took my last $20 so no drinks. Overall good experience but don't overcharge parking.

Great stadium for soccer games (home of the Chicago Fire). There are great views from any seat at this stadium. Plenty of concessions and shops around the perimeter. And an awesome place to tailgate before and after games. I do wish they'd lower the parking fee ($20), but I guess it's not that bad if you're traveling in a group.
I came here for the Chicago Open Air July 15, 16, and 17. The area is very large and there was plenty of space. The parking for the area was packed but then again it was a large event. I do suggest taking an uber or lyft to this area if you don't want a bad time with parking for larger events.
Was there for a 3 day Chicago Open Air. It was a good place to spend time at. One complain would be, is that parking lot, it's entrance and exits are not optimized for quickest leave. If you are lucky to leave stadium within first few thousands attending - you are lucky one. Otherwise you will be stuck on the parking lot for 30 minutes plus.
Horrible venue for a concert or festival. I was there for a three day festival and the parking was a nightmare. $20 extra per day to park and we had to walk more than a mile on one of those days. the day we were closer to the venue, it took two hours to leave. you can't park on the street because the city has no parking/tow away signs up and road closures anywhere near the venue. there were no water fountains at the venue. overpriced drinks were the only option. would not come here again no matter who's playing.
