This Garden is an All American!

Portsmouth NH

 

Prescott Park includes over 10 acres of prime waterfront property along the Piscataqua River. There are five distinct areas found within the overall park boundary. First, there is the upper or north park area featuring the parking area, the municipal docks, the Sawtelle walking pier and the Emerson Hovey Fountain. The next area is the center park containing the "T-pier" and the performing amphitheater and stage. In this area are the public restrooms and snack bar (both seasonal). Adjoining the center park area is the formal garden with the pathways, fountains and full planting beds. The fourth main area is the lower or south park area that includes the two main park buildings, the liberty pole and the "trial garden". The last separate park area is across the Peirce Island bridge and is called Four Tree Island where one can have the best views of the harbor or relax and have a picnic
