Gatherings

Bring the whole office or family!

Company gatherings, family reunions, field trips, birthdays, weddings, and scouting activities are a few examples of groups using the park throughout the year.

There are facilities that can be reserved for a fee including the Picnic Shelter, Gazebo, Bandstand, and Ship Cove Platform. Click here for more information on our Fort Williams Park site rentals.

Family Fun Day is celebrated in the Park at the end of the school year. There is a parade down Shore road to the entrance to the park followed by activities sponsored by several local groups, a concert, and fireworks to wrap up the event.

10K road race “Beach to Beacon” is held every year on the first Saturday of August. There are over 6000 participants that run the course starting at Crescent Beach and ending at Portland Head Light.

Sounds by the Sea is a six-week summer concert series beginning the second Monday in July. Bands begin performing at 6:00 pm at either the picnic shelter or the bandstand. Bring a picnic, spread out a blanket, and gather with family and friends to listen to the sounds of the sea and some great music.
