We eloped to this park and it was incredible. It has a lot to offer with a great background. No one to bother you. It was just magical! I had called ahead to speak with the staff about holding a small ceremony there and they were very accommodating and super friendly!

This is an extremely lovely experience. Each flower bed is clearly marked and the fields of flowers are beyond beautiful. If you are attracted to art, photography, or just want to feel alive it is worth a visit. If you have a camera (smart phone) or a canvas capture the moments. I would think that as the days grow shorter... More

Great photo opps and nice picnic spots. Like the contiguous walking areas around the harbor, too. So much history to discover here!

This is a neat waterfront park to visit. It's primarily a collection of flower gardens with paths to walk through. It sits right on the waterfront. The flowers gardens are impeccably maintained as is the lawn area surrounding them. If you're in Portsmouth during the summer months, it's well worth the time to stroll over to this place and wander... More

Really enjoyed the nice park and Gundowla tour - nice on a warm day! Doing this during the changing of the leaves season was very pretty - lighthouses are beautiful.

The flowers were still in bloom and so tastefully decorated grounds. We spent at least an hour just walking around and enjoying.

The park provides an enjoyable place to walk, sit, reflect, people watch...mostly a very relaxing spot for along the Piscataqua River. We had stopped at the Chamber of Commerce's information center and was provided with a "walking tour" that included the Park and it was well worth our time to stroll through.
