“Great open space”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

Love the open space right downtown; place to find some shade, sit and read or just casually walk around when not shopping

“Pretty park...”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

This is a pretty little park with gardens and a fountain. A nice spot to sit on one of the benches and take a break. You have a view of many of the shops here.
There is also a lovely park on the harbor with beautiful views of the water. Many places to sit. pretty flowers and a fountain at this one too.

“Bar Harbor Center Park”
Reviewed December 17, 2012

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.

“A great gathering place! Bring your dog!”
Reviewed December 8, 2012

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.
