  • Great trails right on the water. Good for Xcountry skiing, hiking, etc...There are even Geocaches hidden on the trails. 
  • The is a great place for a casual walk and family fun. The views are breath taking, but walk doesn't have to be! 
  • I live in Maine and have been in and out of Freeport for years, but never visited this park until now. It has some lovely treks in the woods and beautiful views of the ocean.

  • This is one of quieter getaways in Freeport. The Casco Bay trail along the ocean is surreal. For photographers, there are lots of scenic spots.
  • Only five miles from downtown Freeport this is a great place to get close to the ocean, take a quiet walk, maybe watch the Osprey soar, and have a picknick lunch.
  • This is a great little park to visit, but there's not much to do. If you're not REALLY into osprey watching. The osprey island is definitely the highlight of the visit. If you're in the area and bored, it may be worth a trip.
  • I feel that any park that offers handicap accessible trails deserves 5 stars for being available to anyone looking to enjoy nature. The views of the water are gorgeous and the park and trails are taken care of. There are plenty of areas for picnics or just sitting and relaxing.
  • Ocean, woods, great walking trails, everything you could want in a park only 15 minutes from Freeport shopping.
