Beautiful park, lighthouse is small but beautiful to see. There is also a memorial in the park too of the ship building industry history, that we enjoyed. Great place to visit. Word of caution, if you are walking across the grass keep an eye out for dog poop, unfortunately looked like several irresponsible dog owners coming here.

This park has a great view of downtown Portland. There is also a small lighthouse you can walk out to. One area of the park has an historical exhibit on the extensive military shipbuilding that occurred in Portland during WW II. There are many period photographs with extensive information that will delight military history buffs. This is a great park to visit.

Quiet and relaxing park. The Bug Light was very pretty as it sit on the water. Very nice place to take a family.

Beautiful Park to view the shoreline of South Portland. We got to visit the museum and also visit Bug Lighthouse on the bay. Nice area to talk a walk along the shoreline. We highly recommend visiting this place.

Like many of the lighthouses in Maine, you can walk up to them but not enter. There is a nice tribute nearby to the shipyards during WWII and the park area is very pleasant.

Nice walk up Lighthouse. This was in a beautiful location. Lots of info provided. Overlooks downtown Portland. There are even picnic areas. Nice stop if you are in the area.

What a cute little lighthouse! Was with a friend who lives in Portland and was showing us around and she brought us to Bug Light. I mentioned the name and she said it was “cute as a bug.” Very nice park around the lighthouse. It was great that it was dog friendly for my group, but I just wish people would abide by the rules and keep their dogs on a leash. There was one guy who was letting his dog run all over the place and if we were not paying attention and going very slow in the parking lot, we could’ve hit him. It’s a shame when one careless person could possibly ruin it for others. But the lighthouse is adorable, some history at the park, and a view of Fort Gorges from shore!

Glad we could see the Bug Light house at Bug Light Park. A short walk to the lighthouse. It was in a beautiful location and even got a picture of a sailboat by it.

We enjoyed looking at the small light house. It was in a pretty location. Parking was available and it was only a short walk to the light.

Nice clean park. Lots of bikes, dogs, kites. Some nice views & a cute little lighthouse. Definitely worth an hour or so on a nice day.
