A blast to the past

Fun for the kids, but it really needs to be updated. Love the old games. Also, good luck trying to park on a summer day.

While the shop fronts are slightly run down, the beauty in the Willows is in the park, beach, and the view of the harbor.

One of my favorite not so busy parks of Salem. Beautiful willow trees and ocean views. My only wish is that more stores were open during weekdays.

Kids will enjoy walking through the area and playing some of the games, having an ice-cream and taking an outdoor break from most of Salem witch stuff which is indoors.

Right down by the water in a very secluded area. There are rides for the kids and great food. There is a nice park attached where you can look out over the water.
