“a treat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2013

I walked in tahe park just checking out the neighborhood and was pleasently surprised. It was cold and windy, but the walk with the view of the bay was a treat, lots of birds, and Canada Geese made it interesting..Great for families with children, lots of playground equipment, pick nick tables walking trails, sport fields and a board walk. Info about the eco system makes it educaational as well. We loved it

“Unbelieveable Christmas Lights!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013

This park is a neat feature in Ocean City, Maryland. Walking, playing, picknics, bike riding, just a nice all around family park.

But in the wintertime this park is converted into one of the most fantastic light shows I've ever seen short of Disneyland and Disney World. You ride around the light show in a tram...and basically stare open-mouthed at all the fantastic light displays provided for your total enjoyment.

The Northside Park Christmas Lights is a great combination with the New Years Eve gala at the Clarion Resort Fountainebleau Hotel.

The park is lovely and the winter light show is a blast! Your family will love it.

“Great park!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2013

We have a summer condo right next to the park. We have contemplated moving to a bigger unit but don't want to give up having the park so close. We jog, walk, bicycle, sit on the benches to feed the ducks, watch soccer, baseball, people watch, walk the dogs. There is even a little area that the dogs can go swimming. In the summer they have concerts, craft fairs, 4th of July celebration and in dec. they have a train ride through the park to see the extensive Christmas lights. Love this park.
