Went by this cute little park many times. Children seemed to be enjoying it ... very clean and well-kept. Great place for children to play and adults to enjoy the sunshine and laughter.

Nice area with plenty of parking. Walk around the boardwalk watching people fish or launch boats. Spectacular for watching the sunset with the new bridge in the foreground. Short walk over to Beach Bunny Ice Crean and many restaurant choices.

There are things for every age person to do. Swings and climbing gym for the little ones, a space to throw or kick a ball around, perfect picnic spots - covered and a nice walkway out on the water.

The Soundside Park is a great place to stop and grab a picture or two. Stop near sunset and catch reflections in the calm, sheltered water. Catch memories of the famous bridge before they take it away.

Great place to let the kids blow off some steam running around. You can put your boat in and out for free day or night plus fish off the soundside pier.

If you’re looking for a place to fish, take the kids or just watch the boats Soundside is a good spot. It has a great playground with up to date equipment. There is a paved walkway along the sound. Interpersed are small docks to fish...More

We come here every year on our first night down to watch the sun set and let the kids play. The bathrooms are clean and the play area is nice. Good for a little sound side fishing too.

We went to this wonderful little park four times in the two weeks we were on Topsail Island. We crabbed, we fished, we watched the swing bridge open and close (if you're not here this summer you may have missed your chance at this one)...More

We always go at least once in a visit. It has beautiful views of the sound and is an easy walk. If you have young kids there is a playground
