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!

Sit on the park benches or stroll along the paths. Walk your dog, ride your bike. Best views of Casco Bay in Portland.

We drove through and saw many people relaxing on the lawns or going to the water. A nice place for a picnic or an afternoon of relaxing. Pet friendly. Also enjoyed the architecture of the old homes.

beautiful spot to watch the world go by - whether it's the boats or the walkers. Wonderful walking trail and paths there. Peaceful. concerts, beach...... just go, the place itself is so relaxing. easy to find if you drive east on congress street (the main downtown street).

Eastern Promenade is one of those gems on the edge of the city. There are places to walk/exercise, tranquil spots to look at the water, and a great place to view seasonal fireworks.
