Riverton Trolley Park - Another Gem of the Portland Trails System!

Riverton Trolley Park - Another Gem of the Portland Trails System!

With the unseasonably warm temperatures urging me to get outside yesterday, I used my day off to explore yet another gem of the Portland Trails system with my two Labs.  A few of my customers have told me that they enjoy romping with their dogs at Riverton Trolley Park in Portland and now I can totally understand why!  What a nice place to relax, poke around and exercise the mutts!

This park is well-maintained by the Portland Trails folks and is part of the Sebago To Sea trail system as well.  Located off Route 302 as you head toward Westbrook, parking is located at the trailhead adjacent to a ball field on your left just after you take a right off 302 onto Riverside Drive at the traffic light just past Tortilla Flat and Riverton Housing Complex.  My dogs are obedient to voice commands off-leash, but I carried their leashes in case we encountered walkers who don't love dogs.
