  • 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.
  • Beautiful little park on the water in Portsmouth NH. They have hanicapped parking on both sides and a fully wheelchair accessible restroom..hint, it's around back behind the men's restroom.
