Bug light Park is a great place to visit. There is plenty of parking and places to sit and enjoy the outdoors. You can follow the path out to the light.

A beautifully peaceful park with views of the ocean, lighthouse and Portland. A perfect place for a picnic.

Nice park for the view and sightseeing. Lots of kites flying and wedding setting up. Light house was small. They also have a liberty ship memorial here. Portland was a navy yard in WW II.

This easily accessed park has a large grassy area, beautiful views of Portland and the Harbor. This was a quick stop for us, but you could spend more time here easily.

Easy parking and access to a beautiful lighthouse. The walk is fun to reach the end by jumping over large rocks! Wear comfortable shoes and enjoy the gorgeous views!

Met an excursion at this park. I wouldn't make a special trip here. There really isn't much to see and the park isn't pretty. Much better sites to visit.

This was a fun place to go. We had a great time walking the area as well as the history. Even my teen age step son thought it was cool.

The lighthouse is not anything special but there is plenty of parking and benches. We saw a lot of kites flying and there was a shop selling kites nearby. There is a nice water view and wasn't too crowded on a Friday afternoon.
