This is a nice little relaxing spot in a little relaxing town. We just like to sit and watch the clouds roll by and the fishermen/women put their boats in the water. There's a playground for the children. There are also a few picnic tables under cover. They also have restrooms. We purposely drove here to watch the sunsets and... More

Great little park to chill. Fishing, lots of boardwalk over the sound, and great bird watching. Public bathroom, picnic tables, and comfortable Adirondack chairs.

My kids favorite playground on the island (there are several in Surf City which I think is fabulous.) Great crabbing and fishing for the little ones too. Park and Recreation do a great job sponsoring things at the park for holidays and friday nights. Its well maintained and always a hub of activity at the boat launch. Decent parking and... More

Celebrating our anniversary and on vacation. Found this to be a very nice park and a great place to watch the beautiful sunset. Will go again and I'm sure our granddaughter will love the playground.

Very nice Boardwalk overlooking inter coastal waterway and boat launch. Great playground equipment and picnic shelters with water views. Surf City Park and Recreation has Friday night activities for the kids with movies (concessions) and live bands for all! Well Done with very nice stage and facilities.

I hadn't been to Topsail Island in over ten years and decided to check out this park since it was not there when I was last on the island. I am glad I did! The pier doesn't look like much but if you enjoy catching fish then you need to go there. As soon as my hook hit the water... More

Crabs, herons, fish, oh my. Beautiful and well-maintained way to walk through the marshes of the intercoastal waterway.

I visited the Sound Side park after visiting Surf City for business this past week. The park is meticulously maintained by the city. There is a nice children's play area, a gazebo for outdoor concerts, boat ramps, and a boardwalk for just strolling around and enjoying some amazing views.... There is plenty of parking and it is close to some... More

Pretty small park in Surf City. Picnicking with nice views. On Tuesdays during the season a few local artists offer their crafts for sale.
