“Loved the band”
Reviewed August 12, 2014

The Village Green is a nice park in the center of town. As we were walking back to the B&B after dinner, we were passing the Green when we realized the Bar Harbor Town Band was playing in the gazebo. They were fantastic! People were there with their chairs and the crowd was having a great time. I loved that they let children tell jokes between the bands songs. Such a nice place to spent the rest of the evening.

“Nice green space in town”
Reviewed August 9, 2014

This is a nice little park-like area with a few benches scattered around. It's a nice place to sit and rest after walking through downtown if you can find a bench available, which proved difficult to do on most visits. We walked to the green each day to catch an Explorer bus to Acadia and at least you can find some shade to rest in during your wait. More benches would be wonderful.

“Much Prefer Agamont Park”
Reviewed August 7, 2014

OK, they have occasional concerts, dogs and bus pick-ups and drop-offs. But I don't always feel safe here. Never after dark. You can smell dope and sometimes see beer bottles. You can sit on the benches around the park or hang across the street from the ice cream shop and you're fine. But after dark stay out of Village Green. Go down the street to Agamont Park.

“Paul's Review”
Reviewed July 23, 2014

During the summer there is always something happening at the green, whether it be a concert or fireworks, or just people sitting in the grass or on benches enjoying the early evening.

“Very relaxing”
Reviewed July 21, 2014

This wonderful park-like spot is in the middle of town. It is a large grass and tree covered knoll with benchs for relaxing and people watching. This is also the starting and ending spot for the free Islander Explorer buses.
