Every day I started with a bike ride along the shore on Eastern Promenade Trail. It's beautiful: a hill where you can have a picnik, coming closer to ocean - a small beach, trail, fishing point. The best place in town, in my opinion.

I wanted to see the water what a better place to do it then from the eastern promenade. Clean and safe with people who all are there for the same reason to enjoy the sight.

The Eastern Prom is a special place to lie on the grassy hill and look out at Casco Bay on a hot day, to see fireworks on the Fourth and spend time with kids!

There are super water views for most of the walk, a paved walkway, it is nice and quiet, what's not to love??

the eastern trail wraps around the east end beach (just below the promenade) going from commercial street all the way around back cove (about a 10k). The trail around the prom is awesome-watch the sunrise over beautiful casco bay.

An easily accessible, water-front park, the EP offers a view of Casco bay and the surrounding harbor. If you want a break from the city-stroll, this is your spot

My son lives near by so we visit this spot often because we enjoy it so much - lots of people but plenty of room so never crowded - fun watching the constant activity in the harbor - one of Portland's gems.

I didn't notice what is this place called, but later figured out that it's Eastern Promenade. This park is very lovable, relaxing to just sit or walking around. I believe this place will be very nice in summer weather. Fall is too cold.

When I first came to Portland, I lived in the Eastern Promenade area on the Promenade end of Congress Street. The beautiful views overlooking Casco Bay and the nearby Islands is unparalleled. Seeing the sun rise out of the ocean, unforgettable. It is a community park and a central hub of 4th of July fireworks displays for the Portland community.... More

After exploring downtown Portland, we were itching to find a place where we could get some exercise and see the water, which is surprisingly hard to do in the downtown area due to the many warehouses and such. Eastern Prom offers a variety of trails and is worth a trip!
