Winterfest of lights

What a great way to see lights and get into the spirit for Christmas. It was well organized and orderly. The lines moved fast. A delight for kids of all ages.

Very poor planning on the towns part. Hour wait for a 12minute ride. Save your five dollars it is not worth it.

This is a family attraction. In the winter you have the Christmas lights and in the summer lots of outside things to do and watch.

Nice walking area with pond and long dock that leads out to the water. We even saw a seagull catch and eat a clam right in front of us on the dock!

Northside park is definitely a family friendly park. It has a park for the kids, walking bridges, pier, baseball fields and walking trails. We enjoyed our beautiful day of walking and playing there Saturday morning and will make it a regular stop when we have our nephews with us.

Northside Park is a can't miss spot on a trip to Ocean City if you have small kids. There are walking/jogging trails where my kids love to ride scooters or bikes, a great playground, ponds to check out the birds, and we like to walk out to the end of the pier and chat with everyone who is crabbing.

We stayed near this park in Sept. and Oct. 2016 and visited the park often, with and without the dogs. I particularly liked doing a big walk all around and then walking out the pier and staring at the beautiful peaceful water.

We stopped here on our way out of town - on a cold and windy morning. The kids (ages 7 - 15) enjoyed the jungle gym a great deal. Would have stayed longer if weather was nicer.
