If you have kids and want to take a break from the beach/ Boardwalk, this is the place to go. This park has a nice playground for kids, ball fields, a dock, and walking areas. They even have workout machines outdoors. There is something for everyone.

The reviews led us to believe this would be a great stop. It was amazingly windy, so we didn't walk the whole park, as expected. We were coming in after four hours of driving and expected to have lunch there, but from where we parked, no picnic benches or where to sit was seen. The dock that stretches out to... More

There is always something going on in this park. Like Sundaes in the park. Also the famous festival of lights. It really is a great family fun event and worth the trip, Very reasonably prices. A good use of the boardwalk trams in the off season.

This is a nice park where you can walk or simply just sit and relax. You can view the Christmas lights from here also when they set up for Winterfest. Park is always clean and well maintained.

Northside Park in the north part of Ocean City, MD is a wonderful place to experience the outdoors - when you've had a bit too much sand, salt and surf. There are ball fields, a kids playground, a paved path for long walks and a pier that extends a good distance into Assawoman Bay. There is also a large gym-type... More

Wonderful park in north OC. lots of open space. The Crabbing/fishing dock goes way out into the bay. Really nice kids play area. I do wish there were more bathroom open. Port-a-potty was nasty.... Overall a great park.
