The beautiful views and pleasing sceneries can sometimes be very therapeutic. Portsmouth has a few such parks, and if you are looking to visit Portsmouth in the near future, you should check out some of these places. Find more information here.
Prescott Park is a waterfront park measuring close to 10.5 acres and overlooks the Piscataqua River in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.
