Cute little park overlooking the harbor. Good gardening and is overall pleasant. Very crowded but so is the rest of Bar Harbor in tourist season. If you're willing to sit on the grass, you can get into the shade. Benches in the shade are a prized commodity.

How wonderful to just and sit watching the ocean, the boats, and the people over the Coffee Hounds cup of coffee.

Lots of benches to perch on to sip your morning coffee and people watch. Keep an eye on the tide and watch the land bridge emerge between bar harbour and bar island at low tide.

The park is always busy with people sitting on benches, blankets or just the lush green grass. This small park slopes to the marina and harbor where commercial and private boats dot the bay.

I got to the park early Thursday morning [around 830]. It was a beautiful sunny day with a few people in there. Lots of grass and chairs to sit on. Beautiful ocean view; great walking path along the water.

Small, but a great location to relax, watch the boats and view a beautiful sunset in the downtown area.

We liked Agamont Park's location, right downtown and close to shopping, yet right on the water as well. It's a small but scenic park--a good place to wind down after a day of shopping.
