An Afternoon at Fort Williams Park, Maine

Fort Williams Park has protected Portland, Maine and the surrounding area since before the revolutionary war. Today, it is 90 acres of parkland to enjoy. 

If you are driving to Fort Williams Park from Portland, make a quick stop at Bug Light on the way. 

Then head over to Fort Williams Park. Allow at least 2 hours to enjoy the park trails, gorgeous water, and picture perfect lighthouse views. 

Fort Williams Parks is bigger than it looks. Enjoy trails and historic sites like Goddard Mansion and Battery Keyes. You're going to need a stop for lunch! 

Don't miss grabbing a lobster roll from Bite Into Maine food truck to enjoy in the grass.
