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.

Perfect place for children and families to have cookouts, and play on games, arcades, build up tickets and get prizes!

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!

Still well cared for park and great for walks, making you feel like a local. However, there was little information to say That the Food area's are closed during off season, and a little disappointing as we walked from the town centre.

Would like to come back on a day that's not so crowded with fishermen. Great views. People with claustrophobia or crying children need not attend

Love this little park. The kids like the games and rides and we love to walk the paths they have there and walk on the beach. It is a great place for a family picnic.
