Nice city block park to sit and watch people while drinking coffee. Right on main street. Close to all.

Nice park with benches set in the bustling center of Bar Harbor, Maine. A great place to rest and people watch when the weather is good.

“Great, central locale”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

This place is a beautiful little park in the center of town. Although rather hard to find from Cottage St, just keep cutting up through side streets and parking lots. This is where the Island Explorer Acadia free shuttle buses run from. There are maps and guides and helpers up there; couldn't ask for a better experience to get to Acadia - in a beautiful environment!

“Band and a movie”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

Bored of the stores, tired from the park? Head to the village green space where a different activity was brewing each night. One night a brass band played, another was a showing for Nanny McPhee. For movie nights they give away popcorn, but I HIGHLY recommend crossing the street to Bar Harbor Popcorn company and grabbing some Maple, Caramel, or Maine Blueberry popcorn.
