Explore Fort Williams Park

Written by: Aimsel Ponti
CAPE ELIZABETH, ME - JUNE 1: Eva Landsberg of Claremont, CA, and Adam Sokol of Yardley, PA, look out over the water as fog begins to lift from Fort Williams Park on Thursday, June 1, 2017. The pair were enjoying a post graduation trip to Maine after completing their education at Yale University. (Staff photo by Derek Davis/Staff Photographer)

It’s gorgeous, easily accessible and admission is free. Fort Williams Park in Cape Elizabeth is a wonderful spot to take in Maine’s coastline on its ocean-hugging trail walk. You can also bring the kids to the new Children’s Garden, check out the old military forts and, of course, stop for a photo at Portland Head Light. It is, after all, the most photographed lighthouse in the country and Maine’s oldest.
