We visited the park in August the flower were beautiful, the trees and fountains also lovely! The backdrop is the port and it was a beautiful breezy day! Make sure you stroll through the park in Portsmouth and enjoy the beautiful flowers and view!

While I live in Boston, I have long been enamored of the beautifully preserved city of Portsmouth NH, and I have watched the design and maintenance of Prescott Park for a few decades. I can easily say that it has never looked better. Instead of just showcasing the more common, and gaudy, annuals, the garden designers are embracing the fuller... More

Located just a short walk from downtown and across from Strawberry Banke, this park offers an oasis for strollers who want to have a seat and watch flowers, ships, people (depends where you sit!). Great place to take photographs of the water route into the harbor. There are often shows on the outdoor stage in the center of the park.... More

Prescott Park has great music brought in, and also has a nice annual musical in the summers. The park is well kept and has a gorgeous view of the water. Check out the gardens on your way to Strawberry Banke

If you are in Portsmouth, you should stop by these gardens for a quick visit. Overflowing with gorgeous flowers.

Most vivid display of flowers we've seen in some time....worth talking a walk over to enjoy the scenery. Located along the harbor with plenty of other attractions in the immediate area.

For a free (donation and other vending costs if you want), this play was spectacular. We were very surprised at the production value, acting, live orchestra, and entire event. This was perfectly done, and well delivered. The park is nice, the views are good, but the productions in the park are definitely worth a visit. I wish we lived there... More

Prescott Park is a beautiful garden full of historical landmarks along with the summer theater and views of the Piscatuqua river. a true treasure not to be missed.
