There is picnic areas, fields for playing on, and bathrooms. The best things is the view...take a short walk down one of the trails and you are literally at the... More

A great place for a short, beautiful walk. Accommodates wheel chairs, yet also has a number of enjoyable trails through the woods and on the water's edge. Lovely little side trip off I-295 is worth it. You'll want to live there.

I bet it's not known for skiing but we had a blast going up and down the small hills on the well packed out snowshoe trails. Fresh powder made for soft falls and beautiful scenery! Trails wander along the shore and through the woods.

We were in Portland recently on a Canadian cruise, and rented a car to do some sightseeing. Had seen some blurbs about this park and decided to check it out. Small fee for entrance, on the honor system. Nice parking lot. Well marked hiking trails which seemed well maintained. It was about a 10 minute walk to the waters edge,... More

Love taking walks here...several trails, but my favorite is the one that loops around with the ocean on your right (nay be shaped like a wolf's neck)...you are up high and at various points you can actually see osprey in their nests and flying as well. Beautiful woodsy areas with streams and flora...photo ops of the ocean, the rocky shore,... More

This is a gorgeous, family friendly little park right down the road from Freeport. Most of the trails are only a mile or two long and very easy making this a good place to get outdoors with everyone!

This is my favorite place! So pretty! We take the kids here often. It is great all four seasons and is really truly beautiful. We do the Casco Bay trail, which is only about a mile. There are other trails though and the place is pet friendly!

We recently hiked a portion of the park and loved the ease of the trails, the beautiful scenery, and the cleanliness. You can get right up to the water, and there is a little stand that shows the names of the nearby islands. We were there for a family reunion years ago and it was a great spot for that.

If you are staying in or near Freeport and need are safe place to get some fresh air and relax this place will fit the bill. Located on and near the water and with paths to walk on with others or a leashed dog, it is a good little getaway. So close to Freeport but seems so far away because... More
