Spent a pleasant evening prior to our 7pm dinner reservation just strolling through the park and sitting watching the activity on the river. Beautiful weather helped, but so did the well laid out park and facilities.

Always lovely. It’s on the waterfront. So, it shines in Summer. It’s thought out, yet not effusive. It’s well maintained. It’s safe. It adds to Newburyport’s “charm” Great spot to sit and veg.

Our walk along the riverfront on the scenic boardwalk was the perfect way to experience the Newburyport charm. Vacationers, locals walking their dogs, strolling pedestrians out to enjoy the marine life passing by, all add to the ambience as you gaze at picturesque Salisbury, across...More

There is public parking adjacent to the park as well as across the street and a short stroll away, and you will pay. It does tend to be busy on summer weekends, but usually there is enough parking.
