Very nice park with lots of play areas for kids and dog friendly. This is a nice park to walk around. We were there in the off season and many of the attractions were unavailable. It was nice to walk around anyway.

This park is awesome, walking paths, sports fields, play ground equipment and great views. We walked the path and our grandchildren have been here to play. Can't beat free.

I've been coming to this park on vacation since I was 10. We always had a great time crabbing, seeing all the different wildlife in the bay, just walking around, watching fireworks. It's still nice to come over here even as an adult!

When so many other parks and beaches restrict dog owners from bringing their beloved friends, this place is a welcome respite while on vacation. The park is really nice and overlooks the water. There are a lot of things to offer, and our dogs were...More

We love Northside Park for so many reasons... soccer fields to play on when there are no scheduled games. There's almost always a softball tournament to watch. Exercise equipment and a playground, a paved path for running or walking, paddle board and kayak rentals at...More
