This place really needs some work. I lived in Salem for 24 years before moving to Beverly and it's sad to see that the Willows hasn't upgraded anything on the property in a long time. The game rooms are still old and dingy and it is about time someone would add some new pain.t

Salem Willows is fun for people of all ages. Oceanfront old fashion boardwalk type attraction. Arcade, small kid rides, small beach, many choices of boardwalk food (ice cream, popcorn, hot dogs, chinese, fried seafood....)great picnic area and entertainment nights and weekends.

OK, c'mon, who does not like a vintage arcade, complete with a gargantuan PacMan game? Its truly fun for everyone, with or without the kids.

Yes, you may have to squint to see what the Willows was like back in it's prime in the 1920's, but it's still serves it's purpose 100 years later. Cheap eats, games, and beautiful water views. If you want a fun afternoon that reminds you of being a kid (since nothing has changed....maybe ever) this is the place to go.

This park is long on arcade and short on rides but the locals love it,. The park has ample rides for the under 8 age group and the best popcorn for miles around.

We love the Willows. As Salem residents we go here often at all times of the year. It's fun during the summer when more of the restaurants are open, but it's just as beautiful when Fall rolls around and it's quiet after Halloween. We bring food to feed the birds, take numerous photos, attended a friend's wedding here and enjoy... More

This place is open in the summer and most of it closes in the fall. There are some of the restaurants open in the fall and it is a great place to take the kids on a nicer day. It's also a great spot for fishing!
