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

Was stuck in Norfolk for a day while Hurrican Arthur moved off the Outer Banks. We spent the entire day near Town Point Park, visiting the Nauticus center, taking a waterside tour of the naval shipyard (worth every penny, serious firepower!), eating at Joe's Crab Shack (and Jimmy John's up the street from Nauticus), and watching a day-late fireworks display...

Entertainment and events for all ages of the family. Felt safe and enjoyed some of the music provided. The time we were there it was not elbow to elbow, so we could pleasurably mosey around and enjoy the events and sights.

We have been attending the 4th of July fireworks show for the last 5 years and this year (2014) was the worst ever. Very boring and even the grand finale was nothing spectacular. Not sure if they switched companies or not but last year it was much better. Would have rather went to the one down at the oceanfront.

If you are in downtown Norfolk, you must take a walk by the waterfront and enjoy the area! It is peaceful and the view is great! You will see all sorts of boats and enjoy the mermaid statues. There a couple of nice restaurants if you are hungry. Family friendly.

The location is great, the music was fabulous..BUT...$24 for what amounted to a little over 2lbs of boiled crawfish was a ripoff and what I consider price gouging...I am from La and I was deeply disappointed that Shaggy was "shagging us"

Over the years, I have spent many weekends at Town Point Park in Norfolk. I live in Hampton and happily make the trek from the peninsula to southside to go to Town Point Park. Early June, our visit to Town Point Park was for Harborfest. My husband and I got there by noon on Friday in time for the Parade... More
