My 3 teenage sons spent the entire day fishing and crabbing off the pier. They ended up catching enough crabs for us to steam that night. I walked around the park several times to get my steps in. It was very peaceful

Was recommended to go here to see the sunset while in ocean city. Did not disappoint. Best place to watch the sun go down on the bay. Beautiful!

Did not even know this place existed. It's not far off the main road but it seems so remote. The wetlands are beautiful and the sky is wide open - no big, bright buildings to ruin the view. It's a great place to watch sunsets...More

I have 2 toddlers who love to climb on playgrounds, and the one at Northside Park gets their seal of approval!

I had no idea this park existed until my brother in law stumbled upon it while out for a walk. I don't think the town wants you to know it's there. We used the softball field for batting practice and rented kayaks while there. Fun...More

There's a great walking trail and wide open fields with shallow marshes. Very relaxing, also a really cool workout park close by the Softball field.

Recent visit for a tournament, the park is very clean and well kept.. Only thing would be nice if a few more shade trees were planted where possible. But otherwise its a great place!!

Nice park. Have swing set for younger kids. A track to ride you bike or jog on. The best thing is a long pier that the kids like to do crabbing on.

We enjoyed that walking path and the long pier into the bay. There was kayak rental and paddleboat rentals. Free parking also
