How to Get There

Parking for our Water Works Pops concerts is free! Lots will open at 5:00PM. Follow the signage to enter Water Works Park from Fleur Drive; an attendant will direct you to our free parking lots. You can view a full map of the concert grounds, including parking locations, here.

Those requiring accessible parking may park to the south of the stage. For those who would like additional assistance reaching the concert grounds, a golf cart will shuttle between the ADA lot and the concert grounds to transport up to five people at a time.

Want to ride the trails to the concert? A free bicycle valet service will be available starting at 5:00PM. 

What to Bring

Blankets and lawn chairs are welcome on the lawn – no beach umbrellas or tents, please, as they may obstruct others’ view of the concert. 

You are welcome to bring a picnic basket or a cooler to Water Works Pops. Wine and beer can be consumed on park grounds, but please take any trash with you when you leave. There will also be a wide variety of food trucks onsite selling treats.

We strongly encourage all audience members to wear masks when moving around the concert grounds, visiting vendors, or using the restrooms. The concert lawn is very large with ample space to spread out; please distance yourself from nearby groups when setting up your chairs and blankets. Sound towers will be located throughout the concert grounds to ensure everyone can hear, no matter where you sit.
