Your recent Night & Day column dated Aug. 27, “Concerts move to Lions Park,” I have to say there was no public input in the decision by the Zionsville Cultural District to move this great series as it was mentioned in the article for the past 28 years. I am very disappointed as a Village resident who enjoys walking over to Lincoln Park for this series.
Lincoln Park, which is shaded and an intimate venue, was ideal for the Wednesday series. The venue can accommodate all of the crowds I have seen over the past six-plus years.
There is currently a concert series in July hosted by the Lions Club in Lions Park. Yes, that is on Sundays, but I see this as a duplication. Yes, Lincoln Park was crowded for the Wednesday concerts but not overflowing. I don’t understand why the ZCD decided to move this series. Concession stands? Greek’s Pizza is 100 feet from Lincoln Park and Dairy Queen is three blocks. F.C. Tucker graciously offered its bathroom facilities.
My choice is to keep the Lincoln Park Concert series. Maybe we move it to Thursday as to not conflict with ZCD Lions Park Concert on Wednesday.
