We walked the mural and really enjoyed all the paintings. I would recommend doing the phone tour that is on the sign at the first mural. Not only did we enjoy the great pictures, but we learned a lot of history from the area.

We was not disappointed when we drove down to visit the wall. Words cannot describe the beauty or magnitude of the project. I love the convenience of calling a # provided in the beginning so you could listen to the description of each mural.

The flood walls are Portsmouth’s gem. Well worth a trip to Portsmouth. Take the time to walk the flood walls and read the descriptions of each floodwall.

This is like an outdoor art & history museum. Beautifully done scenes on the floodwall. Walk or drive, your choice, and take it at any pace. Well worth a visit if you’re nearby.
