Visited the park but unfortunately it was raining. The lighthouse is small but well taken care of. Worth a stop.

Our lighthouse search brought us to this cute little lighthouse that you can walk to. The park also boasts great views of Portland and the harbour.

Nice park with walking and bike trails along the water. There are two lighthouses in the park. The views are beautiful with all the boats and ships.

We toured the lighthouses in the Portland area and this was one of them. I walked on the paths for awhile after we walked out to the lighthouse. Very pretty area.

Beautiful area with view of busy Casco Bay. Many cruise ships that dock in Portland can be seen from here. Lots of ferry boats, lobster boats, yachts and sailboats. Popular for flying kites and jogging.
