Lion Sam Farrow Amphitheater

Located on the former site of the old Lions Swimming Pool in Lions Park, the amphitheater became a reality as the Temple Parks Foundation raised community support and monetary donations to construct this one-of-a-kind venue which provides a unique space for concerts, recitals, plays, performances and even weddings!
