Great Views
Aug 2020
We were not able to go inside the castle or walk the estate grounds themselves as they were under construction. The park area was lovely. Beautiful rock formations, and small beach area. Beautiful, breathtaking views perfect place for our picnic to end our trip. Absolutely lovely.

Beautiful waterfront
Jul 2020
Breathtaking views from the Cliffs. Lots of rocks to climb on. Easy street parking. Only sad thing is to see so much trash around. It's a carry in / carry out park and clearly people don't follow rules. Truly a magnificent place ruined by people.

Great View of Waterfront
Oct 2019
Castle Rock park is located down a laneway next to the Carcassonne mansion in Marblehead. You visit the park for the great views of the rocky coastline, watching the breakers spray to the left and the waterfront mansions to the right.

Crashing breakers in a residential area

Situated right next to one of the most gorgeous homes in town this area has plenty of parking, no crowds, park benches to take in the scene and views for days. We almost drove right by it. So glad we stopped.

Nice Place To Stop In
Aug 2019
I don't look at Castle Rock so much as a destibnation but as a place to stop in when you're nearby. It's on Marblehead Neck almost where Ocean and Harbor Ave.'s meet on the far out side of the neck. On your way there, either on Ocean or Harbor, you're going to see great views of either the ocean or harbor, respectively. Great place to walk, run or bicycle. Once there you can gawk at the Castle itself. See the pictures. It was supposedly built during the depression to provide jobs for people. Castle Rock is right behind it. Go down the path and see the view and then a wall and a stairway that leads down to a rocky beach. Or you can take a few more steps and try climbing up on the rock itself but it is not easy. A few more steps and you can admire the view on the other side of the rock. You also get a view of the back of the castle. Nice swimming pool and grounds.

Wonderful views and a bit of a rock climb
Sep 2019 • Couples
Great location for views and a spot of easy rock climbing. You can park for 2 hours out on the road for free. It is worth a visit not only for Castle Rock but also to look at the stunning properties nearby.

A place for everyone to soak up the sea...
Jun 2019 • Couples
This is across the harbor leading to Chandler Hovey Park and is easily missed. However, it's a treat to discover. One can find a sheltered nook or climb on top of the rocks and be amazed by the view either way. We were fortunate enough to sit and watch the closing moments of a Saturday race on the water from our spot in the shade of the rocks.

Dog friendly

The views at sunrise are awesome. You can linger and the park is quiet and dog friendly. Not large but so very peaceful.

Fun to climb!
Jul 2019 • Family
Castle Rock was a bit confusing to find but once there the view was great. It was fun to climb to the top to get a great view of the ocean and the coastline.
