Spent the end of a long day here after touring Portland. It was a perfect place to wind down, take in the views and get a little quiet. Lots of active recreation going on here: kayaking, biking, roller blading, running. We stopped to watch some kids take sailing lessons before heading back into town. Lovely spot!

Is so nice to go and relax..bring a blanket and a good book by yourself or bring the kids to the park or bring the dog to the beach. Amazing place for fireworks too! There is even a boat wrap! So much to offer with a great view & salty air!

The Eastern Prom is a great walk, small beach area, large play ground, big hills to lay on, walking path/side walk, community garden, baseball field- it's pretty awesome. The locals love it for running. The whole Eastern Prom is really long and THE VIEW IS SO BEAUTIFUL! You can see macworth island, there are kayak rentals- You'll have a good... More

A good place to go for a workout, and I'm sure it gets a lot of use from local residents. It offers a decent view of the ocean, but not worth a special trip.

Grab a blanket and a picnic basket. Spend a couple of hours doing nothing but enjoying the view. Simply gorgeous!

Great place for a morning walk with great views, with benches and picnic tables along the route, which is a combination of paved and crushed stone. Passes East End Beach, which has swimming and a boat/kayak/paddleboat launch. The narrow-gauge railroad train passes nearby, and, after the walk, hop on the train at the museum.

The Eastern promenade is a grassy area overlooking the bay, a beach, a marina, a narrow gauge railway, parks, playgrounds, ball fields, running and walking paths. An ultimate area to do, or just relax. I love to sit there with my beach chair and rest, read, listen to music, nap, contemplate, etc. The view of the harbor is magnificent. Take... More

At the Eastern Promenade there's a great park that essentially faces the ocean with a fabulous view of the boats a plethora of other Maine Islands and a few lighthouses. It's a great place to go hang out and a fabulous place to see fireworks on the fourth of July.
