Up the hill from the pier, you cannot miss this small but charming rectangular village park. Lined on all four sides by places to eat, get ice cream or just shop. This is also the main boarding location for the Island bus system.

Every September there is the Island Artisan Art Show on the Village Green. Top Maine crafters set up their tents to showcase a great variety of handmade crafts. Everyone brings their dogs to this event.
Any day is a great day just to come and relax.Havea picnic. On the side of the Green are public restrooms and most important, Island Explorer, a free bus service for Mount Desert Island as well as into Ellsworth. There are concerts during the summer on the Green as well. Not to be missed. Sit back and relax and bring your dog!I believe dogs are allowed on the Island Explorer.

This is a great spot to sit & rest for a bit, maybe enjoy an ice cream cone. There were a lot of children using the space to run & play. It's right near the shops so you can grab a bite to eat & sit here & relax.

Serene, clean, and beautiful with the fall colors. Every town should have one. You can only imagine what it was like here 100 years ago with the wealthiest of our land 'summering' here.

..... A great space to take some time to relax for awhile and watch the people go by, let the children romp, have a picnic and regain your energy for the next adventure on your schedule
