“beautiful park”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

Great scenic view of harbor. Too many buses. Park was upgraded to accommodate cruise ship passengers. However, it still has retained some of it's original charm strictly because of its location.

“Relaxing view”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

Lots of benches to perch on to sip your morning coffee and people watch. Keep an eye on the tide and watch the land bridge emerge between bar harbour and bar island at low tide.

“Right on Frenchman's Bay”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

The park is always busy with people sitting on benches, blankets or just the lush green grass. This small park slopes to the marina and harbor where commercial and private boats dot the bay. Whale watching and scenic trips can be booked from this area. In high season parking can be an issue. Lots of shops and restaurants boarder the park as well as the famous Bar Harbor Motor Inn. Hint: the shore trail begins from the seaside of the Bar Harbor Motor Inn. A wonderful place forpeople watching or just to take a break from the walking and shopping.

“Cozy”
Reviewed 12 May 2014

I got to the park early Thursday morning [around 830]. It was a beautiful sunny day with a few people in there. Lots of grass and chairs to sit on. Beautiful ocean view; great walking path along the water.

Reviewed 18 November 2013 via mobile

Small, but a great location to relax, watch the boats and view a beautiful sunset in the downtown area.
