It was a quiet morning here, albeit for the free opera being conducted in one of the bandshells. Great views of the harbor, which included many sailboats going by. Always interesting to see what is moored here, beside just the normal boats. Lots of trails...More

Situated by the river this is a great place to walk and enjoy the environment and also the river activities. Located by the Waterside Centre and USS Wisconsin this offers a few minutes to relax and refresh

Loved seeing families out playing frisbee, hula hooping, playing in the cooling fountain, or just relaxing in the shade.

Took some friends here from out of town. We started from Pogoda and followed the brick road to waterside. Roughly half mile easy walk with scenery. It wasn't crowded on a cloudy Sunday. The family and kiss enjoyed it.

This is a small park right on the water. There is plenty of grassy areas and is very flat. Great area for a nice walk along the water.

Unfortunately, none that I know of unless you go up to the Ocean View section of Norfolk and have something on the beach by the bay.

I believe that, due to security considerations, tours onboard the Naval Station have been discontinued. You can, however, take the Victory Rover out of Town Point Park/Nauticus which sails past the base and you can see the... More
