Town Point Park, Norfolk

4.4
.

Town Point Park is a 7-acre waterfront city park on the Elizabeth River in Norfolk, Virginia, USA. The park hosts major outdoor concerts, award-winning festivals and special events each year to include Norfolk Harborfest, Bayou Boogaloo, and 4th of July Celebrations. Norfolk Festevents programs Town Point Park on behalf of the City of Norfolk. Located in the park are The Homecoming and the Armed Forces Memorial.

The Armed Forces Memorial is located at the southwest corner of the park, on the river. The Memorial plaza features 20 letters home from US service people from the American Revolution through the Gulf War, all of whom died after writing their letter. The letters are engraved on bronze plates and appear as if strewn by the wind on the Memorial.

Town Point Park is located in downtown Norfolk and is adjacent to Nauticus and the museum ship USS Wisconsin .

In October 2008, almost all of the park was bulldozed to prepare for a total redesign of the park. As of July 2009 it has been open to the public for daily use.

  • This is an amazing public space in downtown Norfolk. It gets better every year I visit. So many concerts and festivals to choose from, or just a comfortable, safe place to hang out. The new Marketplace is busy and energetic, and live music on the stage draws a lot of customers.
  • Town Point Park played host to Norfolk Harbor Fest over the weekend. Excellent food and a wide variety of beer and wine was available. The free entertainment really put it all together for a great evening. Donna the Buffalo was true to form and played an inspiring set at the main stage!
  • Waterside and the immediate surrounding area in beautiful Downtown Norfolk is the best feature of Norfolk. Great for family, by yourself or with friends. Plus Waterside dining and businesses just got remodeled
  • A great location to check out a local event or festival. City parking is available in nearby garages. The park is next to the newly-renovated Waterside, too.
  • With the newly revamped Waterside next door. The park is a great place for festivals. Also only being 4 blocks from the light rail station really is helpful!

Where to stay in Norfolk

A stay downtown is the best way to access all the central attractions and the harbor. Most of the downtown hotels are chains known for providing luxury and multiple amenities; however, there are a few independent inns and bed and breakfasts. Some of these offer full suites.
