Gathering Place opens September 8th. The date was announced Friday, along with some of the plans for the first few months of the one-of-a-kind park's opening.
There are some big plans for opening day, including a free concert by The Roots from The Tonight Show, but that will be the kick off of a 100-day, everyday celebration of Gathering Place.
Other acts joining the celebration include A Tribe Called Red, Kirk Franklin and more.
With children watching and cheering, the date was finally revealed. The announcement came in the middle of just one of many playgrounds in the 66-acre park.
Until now, only a few children have visited the playgrounds at Gathering Place for field trips. More than 30,000 kids have been so far, but park leaders closed it again to put on the finishing touches before the grand opening.
