My husband and I were in Havre de Grace for an anniverary get away. We spent some time waling along the promenade and really enjoyed the natural beauty of the waterfront. The area is rich in history, which my husband loved, and there are displays that explain the history of the area. I'm so glad they took the time and... More

Our group was no sooner on the Promenade then the heavens left down buckets of water. Our bus was waiting for us across the street from the Keepers House.Was an experience we will never forget.

My husband and I walked along the Promenade on a nice sunny October morning. It didn't take very long and it was a nice easy walk as the walkway was built like a boardwalk - great if you're in a wheelchair, walker or just need a flat walking area. There were plenty of informational displays telling you about the history... More

Found the Promenade after visiting the Concord Point Lighthouse - awesome views of the water & nicely manicured. A great place to relax & walk to and from the museums, lighthouse, & park. I'd recommend taking the time to explore this focal point of the waterfront - a must see!

Leaving the historic Concord Point Light House, you can enjoy a nice stroll along the promenade with magnificent views. It is so quiet, peaceful and relaxing.

We had perfect weather for enjoying the waterfront along this nature-boardwalk. Ducks and geese were there to entertain and pose for pictures. A barge with its tug glided by. It was a great way to exercise before the drive home after our night in Havre de Grace. Clean public restrooms are located nearby across from the Maritime Museum, which is... More

This park is owned and maintained by the City of Havre de Grace. It is adjacent to Tydings Park, Concord Point Lighthouse, and The Havre de Grace Maritime Museum. The Havre de Grace Decoy Museum is also in the area. One can take in all these attractions from one parking space. No need to drive from place to place! There... More

Nice little walk around the edge of Havre de Grace. Located right on the Susquehanna River and the Chesapeake Bay, you can't go wrong with the views. Plenty of benches placed around the walk so you can sit and enjoy the views. LOVE to go at dusk and enjoy the night views.

Saw the Concord lighthouse (later saw the Turkey Point Lighthouse - its mirror image) the next day. Not crowded, and free parking.

The promenade is level, well maintained and right on the water. The views are amazing. There is a good amount of public parking, public restrooms, a snack shack, the Maritime Museum, nice placards with historical information, a light house, and lots of benches to sit and enjoy the views. It is a peaceful and enjoy place for me.
