Ottawa Park Amphitheater concert schedule announced

From the City of Toledo website:

The Ottawa Park Amphitheatre is a Greek-style stone amphitheatre that was completed by the Works Progress Administration (WPA) in 1937. It is constructed of locally quarried limestone. Restoration was completed in 2002.

The Amphitheatre is located in Ottawa Park off Kenwood Blvd, across from The Toledo Hospital and behind the Police Sub-Station.

Families are invited to bring lawnchairs and/or blankets to sit upon the amphitheatre's grassy tiers as they enjoy a musical eveing (stet) in Toledo's largest City Park.

All concerts are on Wednesdays and start at 6 p.m. I believe these are free, but you can call the city to make sure: 419-936-2700.

August 3: Desire (Motown)

August 10: Extra Stout (Irish)

August 17: Night Session (Swing)

August 24: Bobby Holloway (50’s – 60’s – 70’s)

I lived in Toledo in the 1950s as a child. The amphitheater was located in some woods that I and my brother liked to explore. At that time, the amphitheater was abandoned and overrun by vegetation. I always wondered why it was there and in disuse. i'm happy to hear that it has been restored and is being used.
