“Best View of the Harbor”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

No question about it, you must drive to Chandler Hovey Park, East side view is so scenic
FYI-stop at Castle Rock for a picture-park yr car and catch the view,,its on the way, Then enjoy the Chandler. During the summer afternoons watch the sailboats in their elegants return to the moorings. Everyone will feel compelled to take swim and at low tide its easy. But always with a partner. ChecK out Marblehead Light at dusk. never mind July 4th because its mobbed.

“catch a concert here during the arts festival”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Great spot on the harbor. There are concerts here during the arts festival (July) and on every so often in the summer. The local kids jump off the dock in to the harbor-fun to watch.

Great views, parking, and lawn areas. A good place to be with a picnic on a hot day and easy to get to.

“Harbor view”
Reviewed July 8, 2013 via mobile

Went here with some friends to pass the time, this is a must if your in the area and the weather is clear. I recommend going later in the evening or early morning to watch the sunrise/sunset. The parking area is small but you cannot beat the price to view this quiet little park. Nice area to also walk around and enjoy another park down the road.
