Great park. Great location. The Emerald Coast Cruizin' was a great show. Restrooms were not kept clean, but there was a large crowd.

Summertime concerts are the best. Great way to spend the evening with friends. Can bring own coolers and food, but also food vendors are available.

"Aaron Bessant Park was named after former Mayor Aaron Bessant. The park was once named Wayside Park, but then went under renovations and was renamed Aaron Bessant Park." Thanks to Melissa at the Parks Dept. in PCB.
