Photograph - Photography
Prescott Park is located in Portsmouth, NH, on the banks of the Piscataqua River, about 6 blocks from downtown and the Market Square. The Park grounds are comprised of over ten acres of riverside lawns, gardens and walkways, three boardwalk piers, two public docking areas with space for up to 26 vessels, and an island with picnic tables, shelters and grills. Prescott Park is open to the public year-round.
Prescott Park owes its existence to the foresight and good will of two Portsmouth sisters, Mary E. and Josie F. Prescott. With the fortune they inherited in 1932 from their brother, Charles, they systematically purchased and cleared properties along the Piscataqua River. Their goal was to create a public waterfront park, free and accessible to all, replacing what had become a run down and seedy industrial area. The first parcels of land were deeded to the City in 1940, and the Prescott sisters’ trust was established in 1949, upon the death of Josie. The Prescott Trust continues to manage, maintain and preserve Prescott Park.
