Preserving and Enhancing the Natural Resources and Visitor Experience of Fort Williams Park

Fort Williams Park—90 acres of rugged beauty on Casco Bay—is owned and operated by the Town of Cape Elizabeth. Here you can visit the iconic Portland Head Light and Museum, relish awe-inspiring ocean views, wander diverse natural environments, play on recreational sites, and discover ruins from a long maritime and military history. The Friends of Fort Williams Park, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, preserves and enhances the natural resources and visitor experience of Fort Williams Park by providing planning and stewardship for projects that support the Park’s ecology, accessibility, and open space.


Our success depends on your generous support. BE A FRIEND OF THE PARK by donating or by volunteering.
