  • Wonderful park and great spot for watching the activity in the harbor. Bug Light is historical and lovely little light house. The SP historical society has a great little museum right at the entrance. ( Open seasonally and occasionally, so check site.) Parking is usually not an issue, and it's a grand spot to eat lunch, take a quick break and watch the boats. (Or a moonrise).
  • Very pretty place to watch the harbor. Great information at the historical boat yard park. Tons of free parking which is very convenient! Great open space, though not much of a trail if you want a long walk.
  • Beautiful park for walking, games, enjoying the view of the water. You can hop on the Eastern Trail bike path on the South Portland side of the Casco Bay Bridge, and run or ride all the way to Bug Light Park avoiding roads.
  • Decent little park, nice views of Portland harbor. Interesting display on ship building. There are port-a-potties, but they were a disaster when we were there on a Saturday morning in early October.
  • A nice little park in South portland. It is good for a nice walk or to bring the dog. We watched the sunset here with Portland's cityscape in the background
