Biddeford Pool Public Beach is located off Route 208 in Biddeford, Maine. The beach is also known as Gilbert’s Place, after former mayor Gilbert Boucher who persuaded the city council to purchase the land. With sand as far as the eyes can see, the beach is clean with minimal rocks and seaweed. The water, depending on the weather, is generally on the calm side and walking into the water is easy with the almost non-existent slope. Part of a two mile stretch of beach there is plenty of space on the beach, even during high-tide, to play games or relax.
