Owner description: Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens is a natural wonder on 270 acres of shorefront in mid-coast Maine. Strolling through spectacular ornamental gardens and traversing miles of waterfront and woodland trails, visitors are delighted by the beautiful plantings, impressive stonework, waterfalls and fountains, and scenic views. It's no wonder the Gardens have been hailed as one of Maine's top three attractions. The Gardens are open 9-5 April 15 - October 31 (open until 6 pm in July and August). There is a cafe and gift shop on site. A visit at any time is a memorable experience.
Useful Information: Wheelchair access, Food available for purchase, Activities for older children, Activities for young children, Bathroom facilities

We discovered this magnificent garden three years ago and immediately became members and volunteers. While we only spend summer weekends in Maine, we find ourselves drawn to this attraction over and over by ourselves and with friends. It has been a hit for everyone who has experienced it with us and the variety of gardens and the beauty of the design are unique. The two year old children's garden is a must stop for adults, as well as kids, and the rhododendron garden is fabulous when in season and when not due to the hilly terrain, pond and water fall. The garden sculptures are placed of iron and some of stainless and many have movement. A romantic spot under the arbor was where our best friend's daughter became engaged. What more can I say?

Officially opening only 6 years ago in June 2007, CMBG has proved to be a very special and must go to garden for any one enjoying a Maine visit. Either a casual stroll or more dedicated learning experience in the Garden of the Five Senses, Children's Garden or other specific presentations will be rewarded. Also, don't forget to visit the Leeds Platinum Bosarge Administration & Education Center!

This is an amazing group of gardens and woods that ramble down to the ocean. An absolutely wonderful kids area based on Maine children's stories (Think Blueberries for Sal) that attracts all the kids and all the adults. A garden for each sense. An example of a garden for folks in wheelchairs. Lots of blooms from Mother's Day to the first snow.

The stone work is really well-done. The paths lead you through a great transformation in perspective and attitude while informing about plants and the environment.
