Waterfront Park

Concord Street, Downtown

With a great view of the harbor, two fun fountains, and a dock reaching out over the water, Waterfront Park is a great place to take visitors when you’re showing them the town. But this place isn’t just for tourists. If you’re downtown on a hot afternoon, grab a cold drink and head to the park, where you can dodge little kids as you run through the fountain, then snag a swing on the pier and chill out, letting the harbor breeze dry you off. As you swing back and forth and watch the boats scoot by, you might lose track of the time, but you’ll be reminded of why you live in this beautiful old town.
