    Great Park with Lighthouse

    Fort Williams Park is beautiful! Great walks along the coast. Interesting history regarding the lighthouse and fort. Part of the Portland Discovery Land and Sea Tours. Dogs are welcome everywhere except inside the buildings. Several food trucks are on site. Great place for a picnic. Dogs are to be on leash at all times but we saw several dogs off leash but under voice control.

    Scenic stroll

    The park itself is dog friendly, the buildings are not. The view of the lighthouse is great and the walk along the coastline enjoyable.

    Beautiful Location!

    This was such a beautiful lighthouse, and the cliff walk was a great walk to take our dog on. Everyone was friendly, and every turn of the walk had a beautiful vantage point.

    Beautiful Walk

    We visited last weekend with our Bernese Mountain Dog and really enjoyed the cliff walk out to the lighthouse. It was such a pretty day and the trail is very well groomed. Our dog really loved the walk, and everybody was very friendly towards her. It's definitely worth the trip and short walk to see the gorgeous views!
