Towne Point Park is the go to location for outdoor festivals in Norfolk, Va. However, during the week you can jog through the park, lay out and read a book, eat lunch, or enjoy the waterfront view without crowds. If you’re looking to take in the park at its busiest times consider perusing the Festevents site at https://festevents.org/ for all... More

Beautiful waterfront park. Nice place to walk or sit. There were some lawn games available but very few people around.

If you want a relaxing walk by the water then this is the place to go.You can even walk right up to a huge navy ship.There is the navy museum Nauticus.Little pricey for admission but if you are close to the navy it would be interesting to do.

This was awesome. It was full of entertainment even without the Jazz fest. You can take the Ferry to Portsmouth and listen to local live talent. Make sure to take your water. Or go down Granby St.

Who knew that taking a derelict piece of land could lead to a most picturesque and enjoyable space. Abundant green-space right alongside the Elizabeth River where the Southern and Eastern Branches come together is the perfect gathering space for concerts, exhibitions, events and just hanging out on a nice spring/summer/autumn day when the temperatures permit. A wonderful place with delightful... More

Many of our local activities are staged here. Concerts, food events, Harborfest. Something for everyone so check what is on deck if you are visiting the area.

It's summer time so the festival have been on repeat in Town Point Park. The park is right off the Elizabeth River offering great views of the ships, water, and the Portsmouth skyline. It's located in downtown Norfolk so shopping, dining, and sightseeing are all nearby. There is ample seating, walking paths, and a splash area for the kids. This... More

Visited one afternoon with 6 teens and another adult after doing some outdoor work on a hot day. It was nice to be on the waterfront. Unless there is an event, the area is pretty quiet. They were setting up for a weekend event so there was a little activity on the park. There will be tourists going to the... More
