The Eastern Prom is a great place to take kids at any time of the year. In the warmer months the playground and beach are lots of fun. In the winter it offers some of the best sledding in town. All year round there is great people and dog watching. The Prom is the Portland hipster's Hamptons.

We enjoyed walking around the town, past the harbor to the promenade, nice views from this point. Memorial to an old WW11 Navy cruiser we enjoyed reading of its adventures.

This is one of the best walks I have ever been on. You won't be alone, but you'll enjoy easy walking, beautiful views, large grassy expanses, and, of course the fresh Maine air.

We have been twice...this trip and in July...the summer is friendlier on the skin but the view is the best anywhere in any season. Dress appropriately for the weather and take a stroll or just enjoy the views!

It's a great place for a picnic, sunbathing, playing frisbee, hike around, walk your dog, bicycle, etc. it's a great place to be outside in Portland. There's even a commercial and a public boat launching area. It's where I go in Portland if I want to just chill and be outside in nature without leaving the downtown peninsula. It's one... More

Sit on the park benches or stroll along the paths. Walk your dog, ride your bike. Best views of Casco Bay in Portland.

We drove through and saw many people relaxing on the lawns or going to the water. A nice place for a picnic or an afternoon of relaxing. Pet friendly. Also enjoyed the architecture of the old homes.

beautiful spot to watch the world go by - whether it's the boats or the walkers. Wonderful walking trail and paths there. Peaceful. concerts, beach...... just go, the place itself is so relaxing. easy to find if you drive east on congress street (the main downtown street).

Another section of Portland brimming with views, recreational activities, greenery, walking paths, boat landing, East End Beach, a large gazebo, vire findets, a playground, ball field, and a large area for summer concerts and other city sponsored events.
