Riverton Trolley Park
Portland, ME 04103
In 1896 Riverton Trolley Park welcomed throngs of people from the city who paid five cents to take the trolley from Portland . The park featured an outdoor amphitheater, croquet court, boat rides, a trout pond, a “casino” building by John Calvin Stevens, and scenic pathways. While little remains of its previous glory, the park is still a beautiful place for a walk. This short loop trail winds through a densely wooded area, by river frontage and an open field. The trail connects with Riverside Golf Course for cross-country skiing in winter.
