I discovered Odiorne Point years ago, when it was home to a couple of letterboxes. After that, I was hooked. It's a surprising park with a wide range of activities for anyone who loves the outdoors. It's the perfect spot for a picnic on a hot day, because -- since it's on a point that extends into the ocean --... More

My wife and I had a very beautiful four mile hike with wonderful views. The ground is mostly flat although it is not paved. We had a great time.

This was a small park with good ocean views, easy paths, and a playground. It was a good place to get out and stretch and move. I recommend this place for families with young children. Nice playground and tables. The views are pretty and it clean.

Love this park. Picnic tables, playground, walking paths, and the Seacoast Science Center on property too! A lot to do in a little spot.

We greatly enjoyed our time there. Nice walking shaded walking trails along the shoreline with beautiful ocean views. We skipped the science center as they wanted another $7/pp to get in (rip off) which was the only downside. We will definitely return. Its a hidden gem.

What a great park, tucked away, right next to the ocean. The husband and I got married here in January. There is a small gazebo right by the water where we had a private ceremony. It will always have a special place in my heart. There isn't a fee to get in the winter, however if you visit in the... More
