Tips from locals
Cute little light house with a park next to it. Great place to sit and contemplate.
Portland Breakwater Light (also known as Bug Light) marks the eastern terminus of the Greenbelt Walkway and is a great destination for a waterside walk, picinicing and kite-flying. Bug light park is also a busy boat launching area, where you can sit and watch the ships, lobster boats, and sailboats…
Get a great view of Portland's Old Port from this South Portland park, and walk out to the small lighthouse.
On the Greenbelt Pathway in South Portland, this park is adored by locals who often picnic and fly kites there. Beautiful views of Portland and a lovely walk along the water to the campus of Southern Maine Technical College where there is a historical museum.

“Home of Portland Headlight, the most photographed lighthouse in the world. Many walking trails, and old forts to go through with a small beach area and photo ops aplenty as this is on a rocky coastline with Portland Headlight as the main attraction. This park offers sledding in the winter time, concerts and a childrens garden. Open sunrise to sunset.”
