  • Fun place to hang out, nice open fields, playground, lighthouse. Good for people-watching, picnicking, etc. Very low-key. 
  • The Bug Light Park is a nice, clean and open space for views of downtown Portland. There is also plenty of parking. This would be a great spot for a picnic or just sitting and relaxing. 
  • Great park for quiet time.... just go and enjoy it. Walk,run, ride a bike. It doesn't matter. It's a nice area to go to with plenty of parking. 
  • Bring your dog here for a great off leash time! Make sure to pick up after your dog and make sure he/she is well behaved. Complaints = the City taking away access for dogs! Throw out your trash, fly your kite, bring a picnic and enjoy the sailboats and lobster boats!
  • I love flying kites at this park. Its right on the water so there's always a breeze and there's plenty of open space to run around. The lighthouse itself is small, but there are plenty of benches to sit and enjoy the view from.
  • Cool place for a short walk with family friends and a dog. There is a lighthouse and some views of Portland.
  • Scenic views of Basco bay and Portland harbor. Lots of boats going by
  • Lots of friendly people. Nice lighthouse. Nice views.
