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.

The eastern promenade had a nice playground for the kids and walking trails that offered good views. There's a little rocky beach that people take their dogs to and we enjoyed walking along and the kids threw balls for some of the dogs. The owners for all the dogs seemed really friendly and humored my kids which was nice! Good... More

Nice to walk in this part overlooking the harbor, and faced by old mansions. Didn't dislike anything.

The view of the harbor from the top is awesome. My friend thought the park had the largest green area of any city she's been in. Can't compare to San Francisco, but so what. There was a wedding going on as we drove down to the shore. Available flat walkway/bike path, rest room, small beach, lawns, shade trees, narrow-gauge railroad... More

We walked the eastern prom each day. It has great views of the harbor. There are some interesting sculptures and a beach too.

Of the city's two promenades, this one, often overlooked by tourists, has by far the best view. Gracious Victorian homes, many now converted to condos and apartments, border one side of the street. On the other is 68 acres of hillside parkland that includes Ft. Allen Park and, at the base of the hill, the Eastern Prom Trail and tiny... More

We had a nice apartment rental walking distance from the Eastern Promenade park. The park is full of trails for walking and biking. We rented bikes for a day from a local bike shop and biking was the highlight of our entire stay in Portland. The trails are nice and clean and cover several miles of scenic routes.

Rode our bikes along the promenade; nice scenic route; not too crowded. More walkers than bikers but a nice pleasant ride; would be good for families.
