Great little park that lets you stroll down the waterfront with a few nice gardens and lovely trees. Not dog friendly though but no entrance fee.

The park is really close to Moe's Italian Sandwiches... so perfect for a outdoor lunch. Quiet and peaceful. Could enjoy some more trashcans for garbage. The benches are well maintained, vegetation groomed and parking paved. A repeat!

No fee to enter the park, but if you wish to attend one of the Prescott Park Arts Festival events, they do request a donation.

No, but there are 8 dog parks in Portsmouth. For a tiny town, that's a lot. It's a great city for dogs. Large and small, you see them everywhere, and many shops put out water bowls to welcome them.
