REVIEWS OF Fort Allen Park IN Maine

Beautiful place

Tim Parker

Great walking trail and beach.

Chad Rankin

Gorgeous view with plenty of parking space. I highly recommend going for a stroll down the bike trail and watching the ocean. The waves ripple in such a unique and tranquil way that when leaving the park, I felt as though I was basically a zen master. Oh, and the cannons are great. Just please don't touch them. I saw someone spit chew on one before I departed. Gross city.


Beautiful scenery

Pat Canny

Can't beat the views. Well maintained.

Sean McCloy

Has to be the most picturesque playground in the world

Janet Kippax

The food was excellent. The staff was friendly. I had the seafood chowder and Haddock sandwich. It was excellent. The prices were reasonable as well. I would recommend this place to family and friends.

We went on July 4 weekend and they had fireworks. It was beautiful! Wonderful park at the end of quaint streets lined with beautiful homes.

Logan H

We visited Fort Allen Park and and the surrounding park/beach areas before leaving Portland, Maine. Fort Allen Park’s history is interesting and the area is cozy and a nice place for a picnic and to relax before a long drive back to Boston. We found parking on the street very easily, but signs were posted for July 4th and 5th that the street parking would be blocked for the holiday. So keep that in mind if you’re visiting during the Fourth of July. — July 2019

Rest stop on route 1. Does the job. Adequate bathrooms. Picnic tables. Don't drink the water. Rest rooms only open during the summer and it is not plowed during the winter. No other amenities.


Spectacular view!

Went to a family reunion up the street and we took a great family portrait at the beautiful gazebo at this park.

Now that they charge $4 to park, I will go elsewhere. The fact that the richest town in Maine feels that they need to charge for parking is ridiculous. Too many massholes.
