Prescott park was beautiful. The gardens are unbelievable and I am no botanist. All summer there are special events in the evening, plays, concerts, free movies. There is also a fantastic view of the harbor and the bridge.

We have been coming here for the music festivals for years. We get there several hour early to set up chairs and blankets. If you arrive near show time you will be sitting far away to see, but you wil hear. No bugs in the evening. Parking can be tough. Find a garage and forget about the 3 hour meters... More

We visited to witness a friend's performance at the annual Jazz Festival. I cannot imagine a more perfect setting for music or theater. Beauty abounds and the facilities are top-notch. A great spot in a charming and thriving small town.

Chanced upon a really great band playing on the stage in the park. It was free, but had a 'suggested donation' price on the ticket booth. We just sat on a park bench and had a great view of the water and could also see the band a bit. Sound was great and we didn't feel the need to get... More

The meandering paths, the sprawling branches of trees, the fountains and the riot of floral colors make this a great stop during shopping and exploring. There are also theatrical productions-check the schedule.

All flowers have labels so that you can look for the variety in nurseries or on line to buy seeds. The park is along an inlet that is ocean like. Interesting view of marine industry.

The is a great place to relax and take time to enjoy the gardens and a little breeze by the water. The garden area has a trio of fountains surrounded by lovingly tended formal gardens. I sat on one of the benches while waiting for my husband to meet me and enjoyed people watching, listening to the sounds of the... More

I've been coming here since I was little its always been beautiful. There is always concerts or festivals going on in the park. Even if nothing is going on its good to go for a walk or have a picnic!

Short walk from downtown. Lovely little oasis with beautiful flowers. Nice place to take family or wedding pictures. Close to the water.

Catch one of the outdoor movies, the summer-long musical, or a chowder cook-off in a beautifully landscaped park. Bring a chair and enjoy this with a view of the gardens, the naval shipyard, or the ships passing by. Great place for a picnic too!
