This park is easy to find on a gps, lots of room for picnics, frisbee throwing and its dog friendly. The Liberty Memorial and Bug Light lighthouse is within the park. Worth a visit.

Across the way from where the cruise ships dock, you should be able to see this lighthouse. You can walk right up to the lighthouse. Plenty of parking. If you go, this lighthouse shares the same parking lot as the Liberty Ship Memorial.

Located in Bug Light Park in South Portland, a very small but cute lighthouse wth views of the harbor. Combine with a trip to the nearby Ledge Lighthouse.
