This park is a great place to get an over-all view of the Harbor and docks. The flowers were beautiful, and we visited it while we waited for the Strawberry Banke Museum to open, as it is right across the street.

This park is small, but the gardens and flower beds are spectacular, and its' a great spot to host the summer concert series

Lovely mix of sculpture and beautifully maintained flower beds snuggled against the port of Portamouth. The fall colors are brilliant. There are park benches and sufficient shade trees for just relaxing and enjoying. No admission and plenty of parking nearby.

We drove from Florida to Portsmouth (NH) specifically to arrive in time for the final summer concert. It was Dr. John. We arrived around 4:30 PM to be sure of good seating on the lawn.

Stop by if you are touristing in Portsmouth. It's not very big, but it's well-maintained, has many nice flowers and flowering plants, and a fine view of the harbor.

This is a wonderful seaside park in Portsmouth Harbor. Easy walking, beautiful flowers in season, salt air, restful spot, and views of Portsmouth Naval Shipyard on the other shore. The shipyard specializes in retrofitting our submarine fleet.

We enjoyed the walk through the free garden displays at the park on the way down to the shore. Well worth a visit, however nothing was open so we had a gentle stroll back into the town for a salad lunch. This is a great example of a free community garden.
