Nice park to visit and relax

This is a small park right on the water. There is plenty of grassy areas and is very flat. Great area for a nice walk along the water.

This park is next to the Nauticus. Bring a picnic and enjoy the outdoors. You can also just walk or jog leisurely. There is no public parking though. You have to find parking at the parking garages across the street, then walk to the park.

Cute little park with plenty of walking to do around the harbor area. The sunsets are nice...parking during offseason is a breeze. They have a few handicap spots in front of the nauticus museum if needed.

On a bright sunshiny day, this makes a great picnic spot. It's quiet, except for the harbor sounds, and has a great view of the Norfolk harbor. However, when they have a festival in Harbor Park (and they have these alot, especially in the summer) it is quite the happening place.

Back in the '80's, Waterside Market Place and Marina was directly adjacent to the Park. which drew a steady crowd of visitors throughout the year. The Park itself is home to... More

Check out the festival schedule and stop by Town Point Park. There is really something for everyone at some point during the year. Do what I do. Go to every festival that happens there. Something fun is always happening.

Beautiful park with lost of events right on the water. They usually hold events and live music on weekends at this park. Great for a run or walk as well.

Had a blast, as mentioned in the other comments, parking was very inexpensive, the park was, and is always clean, the cost for this event and others, is set at a decent, fair amount. I've enjoyed every event in which I've been to at this location. I had a blast at this one in particular. Great job!!!

Have been to many festivals for the last few years. Always had a fun time. Parking and light rail is close by. Sometimes there us an entry fee so take extra money
