In the time period befor Christmas the park becomes a winter wonderland. The park is filled with a wonderful light display that even has the "Twelve Days of Christmas" rendered in lights. You ride around the park in a boardwalk train and when you are done you can get a cup of hot chocklate and have a picture done with... More

This was such a nice park. Big play area, room to run, water fountain, rest room, picnic table area and places to look for crab and fish. So nice to have that in the area. We will be back again.

This was a perfect place to spend a little time. You can rent paddleboards and paddle all around the inlet. We tried our hand at crabbing on the Northside park dock (which is HUGE). Didn't have any success that day, though (too windy!) There is a playground for kids, an outdoor gym, two or three baseball fields, bathrooms, etc. Seems... More

My husband and I both take our paddleboards and our Poodle - mix to Northside park for walks and paddleboarding. It is a wonderful atmosphere, out by the crabbing and fishing pier, safe, relaxing, and a wonderful way to watch the sun go down and take in the Bay.

I love OC for the beautiful bay as well as the ocean so I can't believe I never knew about this park in my prior trips. Our hotel was nearby so we went there to walk in the morning when it was too cool for the beach. There are beautiful, flowering trees, walking paths and a pier that goes 200... More

This is a great place to take kids. It is wide open, clean, has a playground and paved trails to ride bikes. This night there was a live band playing which made it even more fun.

I loved the park located right behind the Holiday Inn Express. I walked the trails about one hour every morning for exercise. Plenty of paths and lots of people enjoying the outdoors. I believe on Sunday evenings there are free concerts.
