South End Park offers a beautiful 12 acre stretch of multipurpose, dog friendly green space along the Kennebec River, including a pier with benches, a 1/3 mile walking loop, bocce courts and spectacular views. There is a dedicated parking lot for easy access, and dog owners may take advantage of a fenced in off-leash area and poop-and-scoop bags. Dogs must be under voice control when off-leash. South End Park is open year round.

“Huge fenced in, grassed area for dogs, walking path, and pier right on the Kennebec river. Huge piece of land with scenic views of the Kennebec river. Right down the road from the Maine Maritime Museum and Bath Iron Works. It is truly a hidden gem. Large pier over the river with benches and nice railings. The dogs can be off their leashes. Very friendly dogs there. You get a wonderful view of BIW and all their ships they are working on. Great to see the destroyers cruise by on sea trials. “
