  • Very nice park. Visited in October. Science Center was closed but we were not intending to go anyway. $4 per person to enter, plenty of free parking. Playground for children was closed - unclear.....  more

  • Lovely green shady paths and places to sit quietly and look at the water when the beaches are a mob scene.

  • Great alternative to Hampton Beach if you're looking for more natural features along the coast. Walking trails are easy to navigate and offer multiple routes. What's left if the WW2 bunkers is interesting to explore but unfortunately, access to the underground areas has been sealed off. Normally I'd frown upon graffiti but there is actually some great artwork here. This place has a little bit of everything and one can easily spend an entire day here.
  • Odiorne is a great state park. It's a very easy and pleasant walk, but because of its location right by the ocean it really feels like you are getting out in nature, despite being so close to Portsmouth. Don't come expecting a serious hike, but you can get in about a two miles loop if you go all the way down along the coast to the smaller boat launch parking lot and back through the woods.
