I'm sure the reason the city opted for a deserted and lonely shot was to really convey to the viewer how the amphitheater was configured with the seating and the stage area left without people blocking those features. Not for the reason to make the place look deserted, and unused.

This downtown park, along with the adjacent Sawtooth Center, is featured with photos in a book called The Powers of Preservation New Life for Urban Historic Places, by Arthur Cotton Moore, c1998, McGraw-Hill Co. with featured articles of other examples of urban renewal all across the country. Winston Square was one of the first examples in the South of downtown parks made from what were virtual parking lots in the late 70's. And Sawtooth was innovative for it's time for being a cultural center made from a renovated textile mill, garage, & former Cadillac showroom by the oldest arts council in America. The park was included in the design by turning a barren parking lot into a central park by the city.

They also used to have lunchtime concerts once or twice per week, but that was years ago and I don't know if they still do that since I don't work downtown anymore. I occasionally hear of things going on there but I haven't seen anything recently. I'm sure there will be more going on now that the weather is warming up.

Edit to add: I forgot to mention that the name of it is Winston Square Park, so you should look for that when scanning the events calendars.
Aren't they converting some old Reynolds buildings near 52 to a new Amphitheatre?

I think you are talking about the area around Bailey Power Plant. There is currently a decent sized "green space" at the corner of Patterson/Vine and 4th St. I have heard of plans for amphitheater here but have never seen anything other than some renderings.

The Park at Bailey Green is a name I've seen, but it could end up being just about anytihng I suppose.
