This was a great park to picnic in in 1992. Great place to throw a frisbee. I have no idea about now, haven't gone lately :^)

From the Bayou Boogaloo where zeidico and food vendors bring the Big Ez to us to the Harbor Fest where tall ships from around the world congregate - Town Point Park has something going on all the time. Wine festivals and beer festivals. Children's Festivals. The Spirit of Norfolk (a lunch and dinner yahct) sails from here. It is adjacent... More

I used to jog along the waterfront area every single day. I love this concept, but the offerings of restaurants, shops, and entertainment are just so banal and lacking in sophistication - how will the area attract a business clientele?

I love this downtown park. The fountains are beautiful and entertaining just to sit and watch. The riverfront is fascinating and lively. Nearby shops are available. Frequent events in the summer make it a great destination. It has one major drawback, however: lack of convenient parking. There is valet parking available. And there are parking garages fairly nearby, but at... More

Right on Norfolk Harbor! beautiful for a summer night stroll, and you have the ferry that you can ride over to portsmouth for a high street stroll. Festevents knows how to throw a nice bash in this beautiful park!

This is my Park so I might be a little bias in here but, not to over sell it, it is very good for all the food vendors that come on the special occasions, the wine and beer fest is the best in Virginia, the Concerts at the Park series is really nice we go every year to the Latin... More

If you are in Norfolk and would like to take an interesting stroll, head to Town Park where you can see bronze sculptures and statues of maritime history, the Battleship Wisconsin, the Armed Forces Memorial Park which is tucked just next to Nauticus along the banks of the Elizabeth River. You will happen upon lots of runners, walkers with dogs... More

Although not a very big park, it is a nice place to spend a few hours. There is a small cafe, comfy outdoor furniture to sit on and toys for the kids to play with. Bring a change of clothes for the kids because they'll want to play in the "jumping waters" and they will get wet.

We came upon the Town Point Park accidentally following a dinner in that area. We started strolling around the area, and followed the music to Town Point Park. We were glad we did! During the summer, they have lots of festivals, and they're mostly free! The bands that play are good. We also attended the Ribtober fest, and that was... More
