“beautiful views of the city skyline”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2011

I'm not sure what I was expecting to find at Northerly Island, but what I did find was under-stimulating.

The park itself is full of grass..... aaaand that's it.
I guess you get a decent view of the city...

This park is hard to get to, and expensive if you are paying for parking. Because the Island entrance is near museum park and the stadium, you have to fight off the tourists and concert-goers to get there.

I guess the one thing that surprised me on my trip to Northerly Island was stumbling upon12th St. Street Bach.
