  • Gorgeous park. It’s well-kept, there are some beautiful views especially at the pier, the playground has all sorts of fun little rides on it, there’s even a shaded exercise area with a fence so kids below 10 can’t enter. There are informative posts about animals and plants the further you get into its more natural areas. I clearly didn’t take enough pictures but honestly there’s enough to do that I’m sure most people couldn’t. We visited during the off-season and it was a bit windy but we still had a ton of fun!
  • Northside Park was a nice park to visit for a change of pace from the beach and boardwalk. Plenty of benches throughout. Small dock for fishing the pond. Pavilion shaded with picnic tables by playground. Nice baseball fields. A dog friendly walking trail with doggie stations. Nice safe and decent size playground with good play structures. Restroom facilities attached to the concession stand as well as attached to the field house/concession stand for soccer fields by the wetlands walkway and a port-o-potty by the playground. Plenty of parking all around the walking trail to access the park. Some stationary workout equipment. A flag memorial. Kayak rentals available. Wide open fileds with grassy areas. Soda vending machines, water fountains, a concession stand for in-season baseball/softball games. Nice views throughout the park and definitely put on the Wetlands Pier. Best of all, it's absolutely something free to do!
  • I love this park! The layout is fun, with a walking/biking trail on the perimeter and weaving in between, the playground is awesome- fenced in, lots of slides and climbables and great for little ones too (12+), several baseball fields, a small pond, and the beautiful bay side and jetty. The park has tons of events through the summer, including their awesome July 4th event and fireworks. This is truly a gem at the beach....wish I had this closer to home!
  • It. Was an awesome light show. Tickets were only 5 bucks. You cant beat it!! Gift shop was also very nice. It's about a 20- 30 minute walk through the whole thing, they have several hot chocolate stands along the way...i could go on and on but I'll leave this post off by saying it was a very enjoyable experience and low cost/high entertainment.
  • Very nice park to walk around and view the sunset. They did a drone show in 2021 which we got to see from our balcony at the Avalon. Check out the view from the pier.
