Houghton Graves Park

Harpswell Heritage Land Trust

Located in the middle of Orr’s Island village, Houghton Graves Park provides visitors a breath of fresh air.  Mowed grassy paths lead to picnic tables, views of beautiful Beal’s Cove on Harpswell Sound and provide access to the shore. 

This three-acre “pocket park” is a great place to spend a few minutes, or a few hours.  Given to the Harpswell Heritage Land Trust by Russell Houghton and Patty and Allan Graves in 2007, this park will forever be available for the enjoyment of both residents and visitors.
