Where are water fountains and restrooms? Probably a nice venue when it is cooler. Views were pretty and the green space is clean.

I love Town Point Park. It's a beautiful place to hang out and the festivals that are there are so much fun! Definitely have to check out if you are coming into town or a local.

Town Point Park is a beautiful Waterfront space in downtown Norfolk. In 2016 they hosted perhaps the most picturesque Gay Pride Celebration in the United States.

If you want a place to go relax, exercise, or enjoy the many festivities in the summer...Town Point Park is the place to be. It's sooooo relaxing when you need a place to get away for some alone time.

I grew up in Hampton Roads, so I have been here many times through the years. It is a cool little park you can see the busy harbor and all the ships around. There is also a lot of festivals here in the warmer seasons. The park is kinda small and the best of the festivals sometimes cost money just... More

Such a nice park. A walkway that goes between the Nauticus Museum and Waterside "Mall". We came here for the Cajun festival and another time just to walk around. The park is kept clean and you can see Cruise ships parked by the Nauticus. The mall has restaurants and a food court open during the day.

Beautiful park many festivals are held year during the year. Statue's and brick walkways along the way. Located next Waterside and River walk. Very clean. Lots of benches. Next door to the Nauticus Musuem.
