I loved walking through here on Saturday during the farmers market. The blueberries were delicious and so was the ambiance. The little play area for kids was also adorable. I'm very glad we went.

While visiting Maine with my Daughter & Grand Daughters, we LOVED this Beautiful Park. There are Wading Water Areas for the Little ones & a FANTASTIC Playground. Saturday Market is so Terrific!!

My 20 month old toddler had a lot of fun here. There was plenty of things for him to play on and play with. He loved sliding down on the different slides and playing with all the steering wheels on the playground. There was a...More
