A lovely park for families, couples or solo travelers- cliff walk along the rocky coast is beautiful-rock climbing for the truly adventurous. Portland Head light, playground, small beach, trails, this park has it all.

There is a lot to do here. You can see the Portland Head Light, explore Fort Williams, have a cookout (there are picnic tables and grills), and even take a dip in the ocean from the small sandy beach.
