“relaxing and scenic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

Great little park in Bar Harbor with a nice view of the harbor. There are plenty of ice cream shops, and restaurants around and this is the perfect area to sit and eat. It's a beautiful and peaceful area and has a nice walking path around it too.

“Firewoorks Park above the Bar Harbor Pier”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

Set on a hillside above the Town Pier, this is your best downtown picnic site. Benches, a fountain aand lots of sea gulls add to the charm and trash receptacles command responsible use. From here you can walk the village, its' shops and eateries. Also look for the banks as here is where the ATMs are easiest to locate.This park is at the far end of West Street or the downhill end of Main Street. Tour buses originate at this location near to the fountain.

“Great view from here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

Amazing view of the water from this little park. We sat here for a bit to take in the view before going on a walk. A lot of people were sitting, taking photos, and having a bite to eat on the grass. It's in such a great spot, right near the water & the nearby shops & restaurants.

“A Beautiful Spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

This little park, practically at the waters edge -- has one of the best views in town. From the lovely fountain you can look out to the waters of Frenchman Bay and to the ocean beyond. There is always a parade of boats and larger ships changing the seascape day by day. The tall ship Margret Todd is almost always in view from the park --- sometimes sailing into the fog or carrying guests on a sunset cruise around the Porcupine Islands that dot the bay. There are benches here for lingering and enjoying the sights and sounds of Bar Harbor's waterfront. Agamont Park is a place you must visit when coming to Bar Harbor.
