Great for the whole family especially during Sundaes in the Park celebrations. Kids can enjoy the playgrounds while you sit and listen to one of the great bands for the night and at the end everyone can enjoy the fireworks and these are WAY better then the ones on the boardwalk.

I came here for some geocaches in the park. While my search was not real successful this time, I found the park to be as indicated in the cache descriptions. I can well see why this is popular with both natives and visitors.

We have been going to OCMD for years and we always rent near Northside Park. It is a beautiful, well maintained, large park that is great for a lot of things.

This park is a great place to walk and enjoy the bay. There's a pier that you can walk out on into the bay. Small bridges to walk over. Lovely scenery all around.
