Portsmouth is known for its beautiful places. So, it’s no big surprise when you come across a scenic view or a pitcuresque downtown area. What is more unusual is a beautiful garden in a public setting. Well, Prescott Park Gardens certainly seems to fit the bill.
Considered part of Prescott Park, Prescott Park Gardens is located next to the main garden at Prescott Park.
Even though it is only a small area, the garden at Prescott Park is overflowing with colors and beauty. Despite all of the trees, flowers and fountains and the high volume of visitors, it didn’t seemed cramped there. Even with the dizzying array of flowers, the park still seems quaint and understated. I can only imagine how peaceful it must feel there when it’s not a busy time of day.
Despite the huge crowds it attracts, the park is kept in pristine condition.
The fountains at the garden give the area a serene feel. Just watching the water and listening to the calming, rhythmic sounds of the water splashing is soothing.
Some people found some creative ways to cool down at the garden.
Below is a video of the garden at Prescott Park.

I have followed him for some time on Facebook and you can check out his page here. Coincidentally, he has a photo of the garden at Prescott Park on his profile page!
