Beautiful Rose Garden

I like to walk in the park. The fountain / duck pond is nice. The Rose Garden is beautiful. And the Saturday Morning Farmer's Market in the Summer shouldn't be missed

We visited this park during the fall. It was my first time to visit here and I loved it. I was lucky enough to see the beautiful Autumn colors, but it would be a good place no matter the season. Plenty of walking/jogging trails (not trails necessarily but areas), space for playing or relaxing, a pond and fountain, playgrounds, restrooms.... More

Lovely walking path around the lake and throughout the entire park. Also a great place to meet local vendors for the Satrurday Farmers Market.

Enjoyed this Farmer's Market. Though not very large compared to ones you'd find in Europe, it still had nice veggies, some boutique styled foods, and cheeses/meats/breads. Nice Saturday morning casual event.

The addition of Tiqa Cafe has made this urban park even more appealing. There is the pond with the fountain, the little house, and the ducks for visual appeal. The pond is drained in the winter. The farmer's market every Saturday draws a crowd for good reasons. It's a nice place to be and the people watching can be amazing.

Don't miss the Farmer's Market. We are from out of town and really enjoyed walking the park, buying a huge box of Maine Blueberries, and the other Artisians....

Deering Oaks Park offers something for everyone. There are tennis courts, a play ground, water play park, a band stand, walking trails, Pokemon Go play, duck and bird watching and a coffee shop as well. We visited this park several time and picnicked there on two occasions. On a weekend visit there was a band playing at the band stand... More

Being outside in the sun next to the water while the 20 or so swans crept closer and closer while digging for grub was both fascinating and exciting! The pond has a cute miniature house in it where the gulls and ducks hang out. We felt that there could be more benches around so that old guys like me did... More

We went looking for a place to walk in early morning. Not much to see. Highlight was a little family of ducks beside pond. Probably won't return.

Came here during the day around 11am. Saw a homeless man asleep on a bench. The park has a baseball field, there was a game going on while we were there. A small area for kids to play and a really nice Splash pad. It's shallow, goes to the calf area, and has water shooting up in some spots. The... More
