“Well Maintained Park with a view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

It is nice to take a break from the hustle and bustle of downtown and Stawberry Banke to traipse over to this little park. The gardens are tended well. A profusion of colorful flowers surround a couple mini fountains. Great place for taking photos. There are some good metal sculptures on the grounds and plaques to read regarding the history of the land. Walk out to the end of the deck viewing area to spot the bridges, navy yard and boats across the ways. Good to just sit a spell and take it all in. Enjoy!

“Beautiful coastal park, and great entertainment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

Prescott Park is a must-see for both locals and tourists. It has outstanding gardens in the summer (great for photography) and a beautiful view of the bay. Take a picnic, unless you are there for one of the many summer performances when the concession stand is open. Such a gem!

“OLD SCHOOL - NEW SCHOOL”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2012

This place transforms you to the 1800 century - and is one of the best city oasis spots I have found in a small city that someone really has pride in taking care of - the flowers were EPIC! I suggest a weekday off to visit - as I did - then stroll Strawberry Banke - and step back in TIME - bring your frisbee or what have you - some big fields and the smell of the ocean - GREAT TIME!

“Beautiful Waterfront Park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2012

This is a beautiful waterfront park. We came on a Wednesday and they had a free concert (donation) in the park. We listened to Cowboy Junkies and the concert was great.
