“Great location”
Reviewed 30 August 2014

All free Island Explorer buses stop here. Village Green is clean and big enough to spread out. Restrooms across the street and there is an Acadia national Park information office. Pick up the Acadia Weekly. Maps do Bar Harbor and Acadia.

“Neat area, the Village Green in Bar Harbor”
Reviewed 27 August 2014

What a neat area in downtown Bar Harbor. From here, you can visit the Park Ranger's office and schedule a visit to Acadia National Forest. The buses leave from the Village Green, take you to the park and return...every 20 minutes. Did I mention that the buses were free of charge?

“Cool place to walk around and experience”
Reviewed 27 August 2014

My friends and I enjoyed taking a moment to sit still in the park while walking around the various shops and eating at a great pub nearby (Dog and Pony). We found this a great area to hang around along with the cool stores (some of them not as "touristy") and some great galleries and art as well. We found parking near the ocean trail - which is worth strolling, and it was free for 3 hours and allowed us time to enjoy the Village Green and surrounding area. Worth visiting.

“Pretty little town square”
Reviewed 22 August 2014

Wonderful central spot to explore Bar Harbor. We rode the free shuttle from the Blackwoods Campground every day to eat in the local restaurants, sail, etc. Pretty spot also just to sit and relax a while (and people watch) and eat a snack. Lots of shops, snacks, food and drink places surrounding square and even public restrooms (very clean).

“Great Spot”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

This area is the perfect hub of activity in the villiage. The Island Explorer bus is based here. You can purchase your Acadia National Park passes here and catch most busses too. The Village Green is accessible and very clean. Great atmosphere. Take advantage of the free WiFi.
