“Beautiful Little Park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2012

This is a beautiful, interesting park. Very impressive for such a small city. Well worth your time. You will never run out of toilet paper in the restroom!

“harborside park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2012

This former redlight district has been remade over the past decades into a family destination. I highly recommend visiting the gardens, both the formal enclosed garden with its fountain and brick paths, and also the nearby sunny gardens maintained by Univ of NH. Gardeners will get ideas; photographers will have fun with the variety. Then, there's the summer festival of events - be sure to check out the schedule and go to the current musical. Fun to attend these outside events with a cool salty breeze and under shade trees. Also great views of the rushing harbor waters, tugs, Navy Yard, and other harbor activity. Across the street from Strawberry Banke. Good restaurant options within walking distance. Easy to walk here from downtown Portsmouth (if you have a parking spot, don't try to drive herre and find another!!).

Beautiful flower gardens when in season. Bring a picnic lunch and sit at the park for a wonderful afternoon or evening.

“Number One Portsmouth Attraction!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2012

Prescott Park and the Prescott Park Arts Festival (seasonal/summer) is THE number one thing to do in town! Lush Waterfront park/gardens/fountains for strolling/respite, watching the boats go by, taking a coffee break, watching the annual musical/play put on by the PPAF, or attending one of their many other events (outdoor movies Mon nite, outdoor concerts, seafood/chili fest etc.) This is the #1 attraction, take it from a local! Do Not Miss Visiting the Park!!!
