“Alright.”
Review of Deering Oaks Park

Deering Oaks Park
Ranked #49 of 159 things to do in Portland
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 3 September 2012

Deering Oaks Park is pretty great, for the most part -- but the wandering bums and drug addicts don't make it pleasant every time. Plus some parts of it can be pretty dirty, with the grass covered with trash and goose poop. Gross.

Go for a stroll, play some tennis, feed the ducks, hide in the shade or bask in the sun. If you can't find your recreation here you are letting life pass you by.

Lots to do here--sports fields, tennis, horseshoe pits, playground, concerts, farmers' market, outdoor plays, mature trees.

With a wonderful group of volunteers, the Friends of Deering Oaks have made a big impact in an iconic city park. Make certain to visit the Castle. Ducks in the summer and ice skating in the winter. Plus a Rose Garden. And there is a wonderful if crowded -- for Maine -- Farmers Market on Saturday mornings.
Still, it would be great to get the cars out of the park on the cut throughs.

Great playground for younger kids, nice paths to walk and lots of little critters and ducks to see. Bring a picnic and have some fun
