From ME Route 196/Lisbon Street in Lisbon, take Village Street south/west where it intersects ME Route 196 at the traffic light. Follow Village Street approximately 0.4 miles and turn onto Pinewoods Road. Follow Pinewoods Road 1.1 miles to Cotton Road (signs for Beaver Park). Turn onto Cotton Road and the entrance to Beaver Park is the first right.
Stop and pay the use fee at the gate. Once in the park, the road loops around the ponds and there are several parking areas and trail access points. Be sure to consult a map.
Beaver Park is a family day-use area open to Lisbon residents and non-residents year-round that provides a peaceful retreat with a remote feel. The extensive network of wooded trails loop around the park and centers around a set of three ponds. The trails sometimes follow old, abandoned gravel roads and tend to be relatively flat terrain. South of the ponds and closest to the park entrance, a fitness trail provides a mile loop with workout structures and stations. A longer, more complex network or trails can be found north and east of the ponds. The gravel road loop around the property also provides flat easy walking and is often used for such.
Many activities in the park focus around the ponds which besides being scenic are stocked with fish in the spring for early season fishing (limit two per person and state fishing regulations apply). During the hot summer weather, the ponds offer a cool retreat for swimmers. The park does not staff a lifeguard, thus parents are encouraged to supervise their children. In the winters, an ice-skating area is maintained on the Middle Pond, providing the ice condition is naturally good.
Additionally, the Park also has two picnic areas, and a seven-acre field with two regulation softball diamonds. The Lisbon Cross-Country Team continues to use the park trails for their running course and have two annual meets at the park.
The park is open daily from 8:00 am to sunset in the fall and winter and from 7:00 am to sunset in the spring and summer. Daily fees are $1.00 for Lisbon residents and $3.00 for non-residents. For those visiting frequently, yearly family passes can be purchased from the Park Ranger.
