    Great park right on the river. Boats can rent transient moorings if they want. Good music on concert nights as well as stage plays.

    Beautifully maintained, views of the Piscataqua River, 4 tree island and the Memorial Bridge. Summer concerts and theater productions. Wander around and enjoy the beautiful gardens, you will not be sorry if you spend some time there.

    The concerts put on during the summer truly builds a sense of community in the city. Want an amazing crowd.

    Beautiful spot for a short walk, relax by the docks, or sit around on the benches. Public men/women/family bathrooms. Fountain in the middle of the park, nice gardens, and small stage with energetic performances that attract significant buzz when it's warmer out.
