Unique lighthouse and very nice park surrounding it. Good place to park to access the rail trail that goes across South Portland.

The photo featured is actually Portland Head Light. But there is another picture of a small white light house that is the correct one. Cute little light. God spot to get photos of Portland skyline but go early for that. Nice little park surrounding with benches and walking path. Bring a picnic lunch!

Know locally as the "Bug Light". In the 30's the keepers house was removed and the light tended by the keeper at Spring Point Ledge Light. Park in the South Portland Public Landing lot. There is a walkway to the light on the right of the lot. There is no entrance fee and you can walk right to the light for a great view.

This is a picturesque lighthouse a short distance from portland. The park the lighthouse is located in is wonderful as well. If you only get to do one thing in portland make sure this is it.
