The 2-Mile Walk At Fort Foster In Maine Includes A Pier That Stretches Endlessly Into The Water

Spending time outside in Maine is always a good idea. And it’s pretty lucky that there are so many ways to do it. From summiting mountain tops to strolling through your own backyard, there’s an outdoor adventure for just about everyone. If you’re in southern Maine, there’s a great park we love visiting when we’re in need of some quiet time.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

Fort Foster Park is officially open in the spring, summer, and early fall. If you miss your window you can still visit until the first snowfall by parking just outside the gatehouse. Remember that there are no restrooms or trash bins available during this time. You can learn more about visiting the park by checking out the official website.

Beyond just Fort Foster there’s quite a bit of history in Kittery. It’s the oldest town in Maine and everyone should visit at least once!
