It's a nice walk across a walkway bridge from Prescott park. There are nice water views and another smaller island to walk.

Bottom Line: Nice views of the waterfront. Details: We stopped here on our walking tour of Portsmouth. Just a short walk from Market Square and offers nice views of the bridges and waterfront areas.

We love taking fishing trips here in the summer! We pack up the cooler and make a whole day of it! Bring a camera because you will want to take pictures!

This was another stop on our way out of Portsmouth. Very peaceful early in the morning. Great views of the water. I don't know how it is later in the day, but in the morning it was great.
