The pictures show all these nice flowers, which I guess must only be around in Spring, but I guess they can't help that. So I was slightly disappointed, but it is still a great, beautiful park right on the water. I sat on one of the docks for quite a while. It's definitely a great place to kill some time... More

The park is lovely with the flower during the summer months. Also there's great river views while you're walking around the park for taking pictures or watching the ships and boats heading up and down the river.

Nice green park cor walking and families. Across the water is the portsmouth shipyard. You can watch the middle of the bridge go up to allow tall ships through. There are summer concerts in this park and they are free.

This park is an amazing ne for its size. Boats come and go, there is a garden full of flowers that are good regional planting choices- beautiful and usually full of butterflies, a big field of grass for games and running around and a theatre outdoors that features a children's/ family play every summer and is host to an incredible...

Free. Beautiful flowers. Adjacent to the harbor. Pleasant place for a short walk. There were some plant varieties I had not seen before.

this "central Park" of little Portsmouth sits on the edge of both the city and the Piscataqua River, directly across from the "portsmouth" Naval Shipyard. Outdoor stage for plays, concerts, big screen movie nights INCREDIBLE flower gardens with fountains, great vistas, great for picnics or to just kick ur shoes off and lie in the grass

This could turn into a better than very good adventure if you enjoy music and local theatre productions. There is an outdoor concert area with some pretty good acts for a small suggested donation. Of course the gardens are amazing and the view of the Piscataqua. Watch the drawbridge let the ships through!
