This is a nice park in the middle of Bar Harbor. It has interesting historical markers and such. It is a good place to sit and enjoy ice cream.

The Village Green is a fairly quiet place right in the middle of all the activity of downtown Bar Harbor. Surrounded by shops and restaurants, the Village Green is a nice place to sit down relax and recharge for more fun and shopping!

You can choose to hang out at Bar harbor or take the bus to Acadia National Park for a quick trail or two and come back for dinner. Some eating places close early though in fall so make sure you come back early.

This little Green is amazing. The day we were there is was packed with people just relaxing and having a great time. There was some construction going on so it made it a little congested. Check it out

A small green area in the centre of a bustling town. Plenty of places to just sit and read or drink your coffee. A haven.

The Village Green was conveniently located in downtown Bar Harbor. We were able to utilize the busses that traverse through the area and use the Green area as a downtown arrival/departure area. Also, this is just a great place to just sit and relax.
