This is a great walkway from Commercial Street (old port) to Fort Allen Park and further. Plenty of room for walkers and bikers and joggers, but take time to enjoy the beautiful boats and the sparkling water. If you are lucky, you will see the train go by too!

The air quality is so much better here in Maine! My allergies disappeared, took a deep breath in without consequences. Appreciated the view of Casco Bay from the top of the hill. The kids really enjoyed the playground with the best view ever. Two food trucks must have heard my stomach grumbling cause they rolled up just in time to... More

Just a beautiful area to walk, run, walk your dog (on leash), picnic, play frisbee and there is also a tennis court. Not a lot of tourists head up the hill from downtown, so it's stays pretty local. In August they have the Lobster Boat Races, and Tug Boat Races to raise money for MS. It is so much fun!... More

It's a peaceful walk, with a nice view all the time.. The end of the walk leads you to the water treatment station, strange!! But you can walk a long time before so it's not very disturbing. Really good after a good lunch!

Just drive all the way Congress Street, up Monjoy hill, and prepare for a view that will question the location of heaven on earth... No matter the season, the ocean view from above will stimulate your mind!

Beach along eastern prom is absolutely beautiful. Warm sands, great views of nearby islands. Right in the city, but you'd think you're far away from it.

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!
