Perfect place to just chill and sit on the rocky shore. Go down the trail next to the red metal sculpture across the train tracks, it leads to a little cove with a driftwood bench where you can find natural smokey quartz crystals if you sift through the pebbles.

Eastern Promenade is a beautiful and well-tended park that preserves a gorgeous Maine seascape. What a great place for an afternoon ramble.

We came here to check out some of the historical placards and to enjoy the park/shade/view. It was gorgeous. What a treasure! I can't wait to come back. Our kid loved it too.

The eastern promenade has the best views in Portland and a great place to sit and watch the lobster boats, ferries, mail boats and sail boats coming to and from the islands and open ocean. It also has a great open dog park on the hill.
