This is a great park along the waterfront in Portland, ME. The path is well paved for walking or biking. It is very handicap accessible. This is not worth a special trip but if you are in the area and would like a nice leisurely walk then it is perfect.

Morning walks are particularly beautiful. Sunrises any time of the year are very impressive Other hours also nice. Great place to walk your dog.

The Promenade has decent access right down to the shore with plenty of places to park and view the sights of the bay. We drove right down to where the locals launch their boats and took a quick walk along the shoreline looking for seals...(none that day). They have quite a bit of walking trails in this area for those... More

We ran this trail to the Back Cove trail. It is a nice paved trail all the way over. I did not know it goes by the sewer plant. It was not terrible but we did catch the occasional whiff. This part is at the end if you star from Commercial street, so it is a way down the trail... More

The Promenade is accessible on foot or by car. Plenty of parking . Beautiful vistas from any spot. The trails are in great shape and the trails from this area are connected to Bayside Trail and the Back Cove Trail. Paths are appropriate for walking solo or with dogs and children not as good for bikes because of the congestion... More

This location allows you to get a beautiful view of the water and the islands that we also saw on the Mailrun Casco cruise. Very pretty!

Walking the Eastern Prom can be leisurely or challenging, its up to you. But its always a gorgeous view of Casco Bay. The walking paths are nicely developed and there are several opportunities to switch levels, depending which way you go. There is a playground for the kids and it is a great place to walk the dog on-leash.

This was a very picturesque walk around the bay with views of the Casco Islands. We loved climbing the stairs to a higher level with better views.

The Eastern Promenade is a leisurely stroll with grand views of Portland. It follows a narrow gauge railroad that seems to delight young children. The maple leaves were past their peak but yellow ginkgo leaves were still beautiful.
