The Eastern Promenade: A Self-Guided Audio Tour

The Eastern Promenade: A Self-Guided Audio Tour

This self-guided GPS audio walk brings you through one of the most beautiful vistas in Portland, Maine. It starts with a spectacular overlook of Portland Harbor, Casco Bay and the islands, and continues down by the waterfront to East End Beach.

Along the way, you’ll hear stories from a local about what it was like growing up on Munjoy Hill and having access to the Eastern Prom. As you cross the railroad tracks, you’ll hear from the engineers that keep the historic steam engines running. Included are tips on what birds to look out for depending on the time of year.

Put on a pair of headphones and start the tour by downloading the app. The audio plays automatically at exactly the right place using your smartphone’s GPS.

This self-guided tour is narrated by Dianne Ballon - a sound artist, sound designer and an avid bird watcher. She invites you to discover through sight and sound the Eastern Promenade — a place she returns to in all seasons.
