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.

Our first time visit to the Winterfest Lights and it was great. Cold - but good. The only bummer - was - I got seated on the end - outside and had a hard time seeing all the lights on the inside of the fence - was also hard to take pictures. Other than that - it was good. The... More

With some people complaining about the lack of a "wow factor" with the Winterfest Christmas lights, let me just say this: 1) admission is only $5 and 2) they drive you around on a tram. You don't even have to walk. Where else can you get such an experience at that price? You can bring a whole family and not... More

Very average display missing a wow factor. We were unsure where to park and were not even sure we were going In the right direction. When we arrived the staff were very friendly and helpful. A good attraction for children, bundle up the tram ride can be rather chilly.

This is a great place to bring kids for the playground and the walkway out on the bay. Many families crab off the pier. This is a great place to run or walk. Your pet will love it here as well. There are many options for summer sports and camps for the entire family. There is also a senior league... More

We enjoy the Christmas lights every year. The tram ride thru the park is so in lighting to share with people who are filled with the spirit of Christmas is always very special
