Located along the Piscataqua River and across from the Strawbery Banke Museum, Prescott Park is a popular waterfront park featuring extensive flower gardens, including large demonstration beds where many varieties of flowers are shown each summer. There are benches to sit, fountains surrounding by magnificent landscaping and a quiet, peaceful atmosphere.

The park is also home to the Prescott Park Arts Festival, which features a number of musical and theatrical performances as well as food festivals throughout the summer.

The festival has featured more than 9,000 productions with no fixed admission ($5-$8 suggested donation), becoming one of the favorite summer traditions of our beautiful Seacoast!

The goal of the Festival is to provide quality family entertainment, promote artistic excellence in the community and maintain quality presentations of both entertainment and educational events.
