If your children need a place to let off some steam, the playground on Eastern Promenade is a fantastic choice. Large playground with a ballfield and an AMAZING view of the harbor. We sat and watched the boats and drank our coffee while the little one ran around and made friends. Surprisingly, we only met other tourists, no locals. Note... More

A nice walk along the ocean/beach and the outskirts of Portland with stunning views of the harbor. Great benches/grassy knolls to sit down and enjoy lunch.

Spent a few hours on the promenade one day last week. Very nice views, great walking/biking paths. A great way to get a real perspective of the daily comings & goings on Casco Bay.

Really worth walking around and enjoying the view on a sunny day. You walk up the hill and then get a complete view of the harbor side as well as a breathtaking view from the east side.

Decent bike trail, but nothing to rave about. The waste water treatment plant at the end puts a damper on the experience. Certainly it's nice to have a bike trail in a city, but if you're looking for the beautiful Maine coastline, which certainly exists in plenty of places, this isn't it - it's really just a nice-ish bike trail...

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
