Park · Hidden Gem · Nature / Park
Town Point Park is a 7-acre (2.8 ha) waterfront city park on the Elizabeth River in Norfolk, Virginia, USA. The park hosts major outdoor concerts, award-winning festivals and special events each year to include Norfolk Harborfest, Bayou Boogaloo, and 4th of July Celebrations. Norfolk Festevents programs Town Point Park on behalf of the City of Norfolk.

Located in the park are The Homecoming and the Armed Forces Memorial.

The Armed Forces Memorial is located at the southwest corner of the park, on the river. The Memorial plaza features 20 letters home from US service people from the American Revolution through the Gulf War, all of whom died after writing their letters. The letters are engraved on bronze plates and appear as if strewn by the wind on the Memorial.
Town Point Park is located in downtown Norfolk and is adjacent to Nauticus and the museum ship USS Wisconsin (BB-64).

In October 2008, almost all of the park was bulldozed to prepare for a total redesign of the park. As of July 2009 it has been open to the public for daily use.

  • We walked through Town Point Park to return to the cruise ship terminal on our circuitous walk around Norfolk. The park extends from the square in front of the cruise ship terminal and the Nauticus...  more »
  • Night nation run was fun! Although it didn't feel like 5k? More like 2mi but still had a good time and it's always nice when you're able to participate and support a charitable cause like Stand up 2 cancer(SUC2). Some people who joined a previous night nation run said they did way better organizing everything this time around.
  • Really nice park in a really nice area. We came for a 5k marathon and it was a nice area for it. Right on the water along the inlet lots of neat boats up close and personal. Great for kids and pets, walking biking and all that. Grass was well manicured, and the views were quite pleasant for being in the downtown section of a bigger city.
