Great summer concert series and lovely gardens to walk around in. Reasonable ticket prices, preferred seating with tables and chairs or bring a picnic and sit on the blanket and enjoy the music. Right on the Piscataqua River so it's a good walk anytime along the water, even in winter for the hardy.

We have visited the Park many times in the summer to enjoy the grounds and the beauty of the water and views of the area. We are fortunate to have the museum, historic homes and certainly all the wonderful restaurants close by. The summer plays are an added feature that can be enjoyed by all.

This is a beautiful park on the river with views of other islands, the fish pier and the Strawberry banke museum across the street. During the warmer months, there are flower gardens, concerts and stage plays at during the arts festival that are fun. Well worth the time to visit to do the above or just picnic on the grass.

This is a gorgeous outdoor venue! We've seen many shows on their summer stage as well and they are excellent.

To have Prescott Park and Ben Anderson (runs the entertainment) is such a stroke of good fortune. We attend about one event weekly. We have seen remarkable internationally known talent for a small cost. The gardens are beautiful and should not be missed. We love Prescott Park.

I have performed multiple weddings in Prescott Park. It is a beautiful setting, especially when the gardens are planted and in bloom. A beautiful setting for photos, and a short walk to the ocean's edge.

This park is beautiful and relaxing. It's the perfect place to have a picnic lunch or see a play in the evening. I like to go to moe's sub shop and get an Italian sub, chips, and soda. It makes for a nice lunch in the park. You can even feed the little birds some of your bread! My daughter... More

Very few cities can boast parks like Prescott. Expect big changes (on the positive side) over the next few years. Great summer concerts and shows. Amazing views as well.
