3 Perfect Playgrounds

~ By Caroline Praderio ~

Nason’s Corner Park

This newly renovated park has a climbing wall made of Maine-quarried granite, a mini suspension bridge, a hilltop fort, and plenty of tunnels for first-class hide-and-seek. 856 Brighton Ave., Portland.

Blue Hill Town Park

Lots of fun tunnels, a playhouse, a mini zip line, and the rarest of playground amenities — an ocean view. Water St., Blue Hill.

Fort Williams Park

Two spacious playgrounds have new and well-kept equipment, plus you can snap a photo of iconic Portland Head Light and refuel with a lobster roll from the Bite into Maine food truck (a Down East staff favorite). 1000 Shore Rd., Cape Elizabeth.
