Gazebo Park Rocks This Summer

Behind the Montgomery Township Municipal Building and Police Department seems like an unlikely place for a park, but that is just where Gazebo Park makes its home

s location is in close proximity to many Montgomery Township residents, and its ease of accessibility makes it a natural place for the township’s concert series.   

The covered gazebo is sited at the base of a sloping field that acts as a natural amphitheater for the structure when concerts take place during the months of June, July, and August. 

 Concerts are scheduled for Thursdays from 7 p.m. to 8:15 p.m., and in the case of rain, they are moved indoors to the township building. 

Concertgoers are invited to bring lawn chairs and blankets and to pack and enjoy an al fresco dinner or snack while relaxing and enjoying the music. 

Still scheduled for June is a concert on the 30th which features Midnight Shift — a four-piece band that is known for its blues, and rock and roll numbers. 

July features four concerts, with the 7th bringing to the stage the ever popular group The Mango Men Band.  Their style ranges from classic rock to country to popular hits that speak to the audience. 

The Montgomery County Concert Band performs on July 14th, and the talented and versatile group will present Broadway hit tunes, classic marches, and rousing patriotic, crowding pleasing music.

July 21st features Zydeco-A-Go-Go, a staple on the local concert menu.  Rhythm and blues as well as Louisiana rock and roll always keeps the audience entertained and rockin’ to the music.

Two Plus Two comes to the stage with a mix of seasoned performers on July 28th specializing in hits from the 50’s to the 90’s.   Vocal harmonies within their talented group are what set them apart. 

For all those longing for the days of peace and love, Flower Power will deliver hits from the 60’s and 70’s on August 4th in the gazebo. 

Don McAvoy & The Great Whatever will energize the audience on August 11th with an array of music that has appeal across all age groups and is sure to please everyone — whatever!

Rounding out the concert series will be Melissa Martin and the Mighty Rhythm Kings set to hit the stage on August 18th.  Martin’s home base is in Philadelphia, and her blues and R&B are sure to win approval from the crowd. 

In addition to the gazebo and the concert series, the park is comprised of 24 acres with walking trails heading out from the parking lot, winding through wooded areas. 

At the present time, Kids' University Summer Program is meeting in the park and utilizing the gazebo and the surrounding area.  The theme of the first week of this eight week program is Treasure Island, and the remaining seven weeks will meet at the Montgomery Elementary School.

For more information on the summer program and for a listing of the upcoming concerts, please see Montgomery Township’s web site.  

Summer is in full swing, so Get Up and Get Moving and take in all that the local parks have to offer — mostly for free.
