I own a condo that is at 127th St. and right in front of the park. The Winterfest Lights and New Year's Eve fireworks are fantastic. I have 2 dogs and I thoroughly enjoy walking them along the paths....they enjoy it even more! Soccer fields, softball fields and flag football fields are all in excellent condition and put to good...

Off season, OC can be a little quiet, but thanks to the Winterfest, things are pretty happening! We happen to visit on one of the last nights, but everything still looked amazing! Plenty of free parking. Pick up your tickets kids 11 and under are free. Enter the building, wait for a tram. Once on the tram, prepare to be... More

They do a great job with the Light Show at Christmas. Kids had a great time riding the Trams at the park.

We visited OC New Years Eve and afterwards, and were impressed with Northside Park. The Winterfest Lights were enjoyable, and the New Years Eve Fireworks display was a pleasant surprise -- good length and great fireworks! Nice location too to get in and out. Good stuff!

Northside park has a fantastic playground for kids of all ages. Directly adjacent are picnic tables and charcoal grills. There are also numerous ballfield, jogging paths and even outdoor exercise equipment (all using your own body weight for resistance). A nice long pier jutting out into the bay provides nice vies or crabbing if you get there early enough (though... More

The annual Holiday Light display is an absolute must when visiting between Thanksgiving and New Year. Tens of Thousands of lights imaginatively set up. Visit includes about a 15 minute tram ride through this awesome display with music playing. Kids under 11 years old are free.

I love darn near everything about it. There's a place to work out with machines that use your own body weight as leverage. The view of the bay is breathtaking. The trees are pretty. Really, it's just lovely.

Fun little thing to do on New Years Eve. We enjoyed ourselves. The lights were an average display, nothing spectacular.

$5 per person admission. Take a 15 minute tram ride through the park to see the lights. Lights coincide with Christmas music playing on the tram. Always a beautiful display.
