Just what you need after days of lobster and lots of butter!

So much to see and a very manageable walk. Boats going by, lobster fishing going on, rocks and crashing waves, beautiful old homes and a narrow gauge railroad. AND great... read more

So much to see and a very manageable walk. Boats going by, lobster fishing going on, rocks and crashing waves, beautiful old homes and a narrow gauge railroad. AND great people/dog watching. We walked the whole trail and then went through the pretty neighborhood at the top of the hill. Friendly people everywhere, cute babies and dogs, neat old houses...please... More

How lucky I am to live in Portland and have The Eastern Prom (as we call it) as a recreational site. It is great all seasons, winter time will find families sledding and skiing down the hills, and in the other seasons, picnicking, sunbathing, swimming, dog walking, photographing the INCREDIBLE views of Casco Bay, biking, boating, paddling, kayaking, etc, etc....

Easily accessible, benches and rest areas available. Area overlooks Casco Bay. Watch the Duck Boat Tours go by. Sailing school boats are frequently seen. View the forts in the bay

On a warm summer day this was a great spot as it instantly felt cooler and you could see islands, fishing boats, pleasure boats and people enjoying a small beach. The parking is a little up the hill but a great place to bring a picnic and enjoy all that is happening. We brought our beach chairs and umbrella and... More

The walk was enjoyable and should be done on a day that's not too hot. There is not much shade on the trail. There are portable toilets available. Enjoy the sail boats in the bay and view of Fort Gorges.

A great place; super view of the harbor and nearby islands; large open grass area for picnics or just laying around; watch the boats come and go; just near a beach if you like and walk down the hill to sample some of the very best hot dogs around from Perry's stand. He's the real deal.

Most relaxing part of my Portland stay. Just wish I had thought to bring a picnic with me to stay longer!

Stayed in a condo on Eastern Promenade a few years ago.. The views are lovely and there is plenty of green grass to walk your dog and/or picnic. There are park rangers who watch people with dogs, to make sure they pick up after them, so make sure you do that if you have a dog with you. I go... More

What a view, bike, walk, bring a lunch, take in the air and view. A perfect summer day in Portland. A perfect family gathering or just to read a book.
