  • I like coming here in the summer to sit down under the trees in the shade and read a book
  • We went to the park to see the Mavericks and Dwight Yokum. I don't have much of a review about the park but was disappointed by the set up of the music event. We got to the venue at 4:30 and waited in line, finally got in at 6:45. Missed the first band. The gates didn't open until 5:30 and there was 6000 people attending. They needed to open the gates earlier.
  • They opened gates 1/2 hour prior to concert. Due to the amount of people going in, it took us 1 & 1/2 hours to get in. We missed the opening act. Then there was high back chairs and umbrellas in front of us.. they weren't prepared for that large of a crowd. I would never attend anything at this park.
  • Such a wonderful drive! Don't miss out!
  • Love, Love, Love that the Town of Taos has world class concerts in the park during summer months. Keep them coming Taos!
