Winter Fun in Portland

Pull on your longjohns and embrace the invigorating fresh air.

Cross-country skiers and snowshoers should check out the trails at Baxter Woods, Capisic Pond Park, Riverton Trolley Park, and Evergreen Cemetery Woods. Follow the trails from Oat Nuts Park to the Presumpscot River Preserve and you’ll be rewarded with a view of the Presumpscot Falls.

For groomed cross-country classic and skate skiing trails, check out the Riverside Snow Park at Riverside Golf Course.

Riverside Snow Park also has hills for snowboarding, sledding, and tubing. The same is true near the Back Cove at Payson Terrain Park. And Eastern Prom Hill is a great place to sled, tube, telemark ski, cross-country ski, and snowshoe.

Sharpen your blades, lace up your skates, and take a spin on the ice at Deering Oaks Park, Nason’s Corner/Breakwater School Pond, Payson Park and Riverside Snow Park. More information on where to skate is available here.
