This is a gem in Portsmouth. The views, the gardens, the entertainment -- all phenomenal. And, there's free 2-hour parking (if you can get it -- there aren't many spaces). It's a great place to walk, picnic, read, feed the seagulls, watch the bridge go up and down, and just think.

There is no better place to spend a warm summer evening than listening to music in a lawn chair at the Prescott Park Arts Festival

Free entertainment in a beautiful, family friendly environment. The views are wonderful. Arrive earlier than expected to ensure a good parking spot. Bring a big blanket and a picnic!

Nice place for a relaxing walk day or night, great harbor views, quiet and relaxing. The park also offers FREE shows during certain weekends, this summer we saw Peter Pan, well done.

A nice spot to stroll and watch the water. This was a blustery day, but a nice break from our drive. Would be nice for a picnic on a warmer day.

On the banks of Portsmouth harbor, across from the Navy Yard, lies a wonderfully planted urban park. There are shows and music all summer long (for a fee - but you can listen on the outskirts). A great place for a summer wedding. Lots of shade, benches, etc. Down the street from Market Square, so might as well do both.... More

Prescott Park is amazing in Summer with the Arts Festival & Concerts. The flower Gardens are exceptional. It is well maintained. Views of the Piscataqua River and the Fish pier are outstanding.
