Agamont Park (originally Bar Harbor Park) is an urban park in Bar Harbor, Maine, United States. It is located at the northern end of the town's Main Street, at its intersection with West Street. The park, set upon a hill, affords 180-degree views to the northwest, north, northeast, east and southeast, including that of Mount Desert Narrows, Frenchman Bay and its islands. As such, it is a popular viewing point for tourists.
Its entrance from Main Street is marked by a water fountain, designed by Eric Sodderholtz.
In October 2013, The O'Reilly Factor sent one of its correspondents to Bar Harbor after the town council voted to remove a Wreaths Across America display that had been in the park since July 2011.
The park is a recommended viewpoint to watch the Fourth of July fireworks each year.
The park has a free wi-fi network.

  • Great green space with views of the harbor, the Narrows, boat and sail traffic as well as people watching. Relaxing and nice respite from the hustle and bustle of the tourist traffic.  more »
  • This was a nice and peaceful place to walk around after dining downtown. We did this a few times while we were here.  more »

  • Everyone went to Maine, and Bar Harbour the same time we did. This is a nice focal point to the town, where the parents can sit on a bench and drink coffees and the kids can play with their treasure from Sherman's. Welcome green space when the town was hopping. Cool big ships to watch too.
  • Late July weekend 2019 - Beautiful views. Lots of people. Good weather today. Cold water. Big stone pile sculptures on Town Beach.
