Nestled atop a standard parking garage sits 1.5 acres of green space, but you wouldn’t know it just from walking by. The Green at 320 is situated across the street from Union Station, bringing greenery above ground level and packing the space full of fun and free summer activities.
Starting May 1st, The Green at 320 will host monthly movies in the park along with a Tuesday farmer’s market, fitness classes, musical performances at the custom mini-amphitheater, live comedy shows, and wine tastings galore, filling this easy-to-miss spot with endless opportunity.
If you’re looking for games, the free amenities are open to the public starting today. Spend time playing foosball, table tennis, and various lawn games! Or, head over to the mini library for a new read and spread out a picnic blanket (which the park freely offers for any impromptu picnics).
The schedule will run until September, so sit yourself down in one of the alcoves and take in the summer sun.
This park has something for everyone, making it a can’t miss summer destination.
