Best Parks in Ocean City, MD

With the warm weather here to stay, we know you must be excited about the beach, but do you know about the best parks in Ocean City, Maryland? Our coastal town has much to offer and the sandy beaches are just the start!

If you’re looking for a spot to take your kids, go for a run with your dogs, or just a chance to get off the sand, then this is for you. Check out your local guide to some of Explore OC’s favorite parks!

Herring Creek Nature Park

Over 40 acres in West Ocean City provides a scenic escape for residents and visitors. Take a detour off Route 50 for a picnic lunch at the pavilion, walking and jogging trails, bird watching stations, and fields of wildflowers.

Homer Gudelsky Park

You’ve probably seen Homer Gudelsky Park when driving across the Route 50 bridge into Ocean City, but if you’ve never stopped by, you’re missing out! Relax on the waterfront away from the summer rush to sunbathe, fish, and take in the views of the bay.

Inlet Park

Overlook Assateague Island at the southernmost end of Ocean City. Inlet park is a cool spot for crabbing, fishing, and a taste of history with the presence of a large Indian structure and Ocean City's marble‑topped time capsule. 

Northside Park

Northside Park is a popular spot for locals and visitors alike, with 58 acres of land that has everything from fishing ponds, to playgrounds, to an indoor community center. With friends, family, your dog, or by yourself, there’s plenty to keep you busy and give you a break from the sand.
