Great path to walk for exercise, beautiful views and quiet surroundings. A good way to see and experience a different side of Portland.

This is the kind of thing you can do in 5 minutes or 5 hours. It's a great view of Casco Bay. You can walk, run, or bike the trail that runs along the water. Or you can just sit in the grass and enjoy the view.

Portland is a great 'walking city', and I spend lots of time exploring its streets in the summer months. It's nice to have a quiet place to relax and have some lunch or something cold to drink, and the Eastern Promenade is the perfect place to do just that. There are beautiful open grassy spaces with breathtaking views of the... More

We walked along the Eastern Promenade as we were travelling in the East End. Nice peaceful walk, with some old train tracks on the way with some old trains, which you can see up close, we sat in them just to take a rest (we had been just finished the Shipyard Brewery Tour beforehand). It goes right into East End... More

We were in Portland over the Fourth of July weekend and lucky for us, the storm that had come in before us delayed the fireworks for a night so we got to see them after all. Eastern Promenade is a nice, small city common place perfect for families and couples alike. We walked up the hill from our hotel and... More

My wife and I have visited the Eastern Promenade twice over the past year. The Eastern Promenade consists of a biking path as well as a jogging and walking trail along Portland's inner harbor. If you are a photo enthusiast, like me, there is some outside scenery, which makes for great picture taking. In addition, there is a small rocky... More

It's a pretty view; but other than that, there's nothing to see or do on Eastern Promenade. Little kids might like running around on the grass or rolling down the hill. Couples might like it as a spot to bring a picnic - but plan ahead.

On a beautiful sunny day, the walking is nice, great views, and a small beach with wading for kids. Lots of food trucks and a playground for the kids.

We discover this area from driving in the neighborhood. Nothing really going on, may be because it was very cloudy and raining a little. Little kids will have more fun in this area play ground, teenager not so much. 10 minutes is enough for us with teenage kids.
