We recently visited Prescott Park and discovered the beautiful gardens around it after seeing them from the air on a helicopter tour. All I can say is WOW! Definitely worth a visit! Just gorgeous!

Nice place to just walk about. Pretty flowers. You can stop, sit and watch the water. A change of pace from busy Market Street.

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.
