Beautiful site to end a 300 mile bike ride. Great view of the islands, bay and ocean. Returning the next morning, it was delightful to see the variety of residents and tourists making use of this well placed park.

This park offers several nice walking paths and great views of Casco Bay. There is a nice gazebo to rest in and several signs offering some history of the park. It's s nice spot to end the day or get the day going.

A nice park with nice views of the ocean. There isn't all that much parking here. It's a good short stop activity.

A great place for a picnic, or just a time out when traveling the coast. The views were lovely, and there were benches, memorials, and lawns for a relaxing outing.

Fort Allen Park is a nice stretch of a park along the water along the old narrow gauge rail lines. The path is well maintained and great for running, walking, or cycling. As you round the promontory, you get some really nice views of Casco...More

The park is at the eastern end of Portland, overlooking Casco Bay. There are parking spots and several cars were there "just to sit and watch the water". Also there are several benches and many people were sitting out enjoying the view and the fresh...More

This old, grassy park, under renovation when we saw it, is on Portland’s Eastern Promenade. Fort Allen Park is at the site of the remains of a War of 1812-era fort (built in 1814) used to protect the city from British warships. On our visit,...More

We visited this park on our recent trip to Portland. It is close to the city center and is really nice for an hour or so. Great views over the sea.
