Went to Matthews Alive to volunteer. The music was great, the atmosphere was energetic. I just suggest they provide water for volunteers and there needs to be access to handicap parking. It was a very long walk to the festival from where we had to park. It was hot today! Otherwise, the park is nice. We enjoyed giving back.
Veterans memorial park right in the middle of downtown Matthews. They hold events all throughout the summer including food truck Fridays and concerts under the small stage. In the winter, a lighting display is setup for a nice walk around the park. It has a small play area for kids but mostly it's an open field with a sidewalk path around it.
Very nice stage, good sound, great venue for outdoor theater. We need more outdoor theater in Stumptown Park! Musicals would be better than plays because the frogs are loud and some of the ambient noise from planes and trains and automobiles can obscure the sound. If people were allowed to sit closer on temporary bleachers that might resolve the problem.
Stumptown is in Matthews backyard and it's awesome to play with kids! Beach volleyball and Food Truck Fridays are the
Great park in the middle of Matthews. I have found many cool events here.
