    The Eastern Prom is a large grassy park that slopes down to Casco Bay. The views from up here are some of the nicest in the area!! It's a great place for a picnic, to sit with a book, toss a frisbe, of just watch the ferry boats come and go. At the bottom of the hill is a smal city beach. At high tide it's quite small but mid or low tide makes for nice beach going. Even in the off season it's a nice small stretch of sand for a walk. This is one of my favorite places just to go and be reminded why I live here.

    Fort Allen Park on the Eastern Promenade is dedicated to veterans of World War I. This offers a beautiful view of Casco Bay along with some of the city's finest architecture.
