Upper Hinkley Pond is a small, 3-acre shallow reservoir formed by the impoundment of Kimball Brook. It is found in Hinkley Park off Highland Avenue in South Portland, Cumberland County, Maine (see The Maine Atlas and Gazetteer map 3 A4 or map 73 G4). This beautiful little pond is located only 10 minutes from downtown Portland! The park offers ample parking. Keep in mind that Hinkley Park is a popular area for local people to walk their dogs and that some of their canines may pay you a visit. Beware also that the first pond you encounter when entering the park is Lower Hinkley Pond.
