  • Great family place to go relax and have some fun. Awesome environment with plenty of activities. Also a great place to catch pokèmon! Gotta catch em all!
  • I'm doing this rating based on my experience here at Warped Tour, which was HORRID. The heat was so excessive literally everywhere I went, there was no shade to be found nearly anywhere. I had to leave early because of how bad I felt since I waited out so long on barricade to see one of my favorite bands. I obtained horrible sun burns, and it was just too much heat. If you have the chance to drive out to West Palm Beaches' venue, then do it because that's where I enjoy Warped Tour The Best as the Amphitheatre provides great shade to literally everyone there.
  • I have absolutely enjoyed every event I've attended here, beautiful park, on the water gorgeous views my only issue is, as at the most recent event I attended this past weekend the 97x BBQ with several bands from 11am to 11pm. Fantastic! Line up, entertainment wonderfully executed event and although there was a bountiful array of food ..drinks to purchase there is absolutely no shade, no trees in ninety-nine percent of the park I would say.. they literally had some stage tech's on hand with water hoses spraying the crowd to keep from people completely frying in the sun, (kudos to 967x!) And a medic tent available as well to help the heat exhausted and otherwise.
  • Beautiful park. We have been to several events here in years past like Rib fest and a few concerts and everything's always perfectly planned. We were at the park for July 4th to watch fireworks sitting waterfront and seen many many dolphins and fish. Our family had a really great time. Parking isn't the best but that's nothing major
  • Been coming to vinoy park since i was a baby. St.petes finest place to have a day out. Beautiful dog park and overall the most gorgeous place to see the sunrise
