Overbury's Folly, a major attraction of Thalassery, is a seashore recreational park. The park is located on the hilltop, close to the Thalassery Municipal Stadium and Sports Authority of India (SAI). The site derives its name from its constructor E. N. Overbury, who once served as the Municipal Vice Chairman and Sub Collector of the region. Overbury initiated the construction of the park as an evening picnic spot in 1879, but could not complete it. During the late 19th century, the site was completed by R. Mukunda Malla, Municipal Chairman of Thalassery. In 1985, Amithab Kanth, Sub Collector of Thalassery, added a huge watchtower to the site. The open air coffee shop and a view point have been recently added to the site. The Sub Collector's Bungalow is situated near the Overbury's Folly.
