Nestled between apartment buildings on Munjoy Hill’s North Street, this small neighborhood park is known for having what’s possibly the best view of the city. Dogs play fetch on the tree-studded acre of grass, which is also used for tai chi and tightrope-walking. A path from the street leads straight back to a concrete viewing area with benches where you can find anyone from tourists to rowdy teenagers taking in the sweeping view of downtown Portland and Back Cove.
