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 Newport Drive, off Main Street, is marked by a water fountain, designed by Eric Sodderholtz. (Newport Drive is named for Newport House, a hotel which stood just south of the park between 1869 and 1938.)
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.
Bar Harbor's Shore Path begins beside the park at Ells Pier and runs south along the shore of Frenchman Bay for about 0.7 miles (1.1 km).

  • This park is beautiful spot for a picnic, or to just sit and relax in the middle of the bustling downtown area. Perfect place to take in the unspoiled views of nature, aka Frenchman Bay.

  • Beautiful and tranquil park with beautiful views of Frenchman Bay and the mountains. The windjammer, sailboats, and yachts are pleasant to look at, too!

  • Such a beautiful park! It’s extremely well kept and spacious enough to throw down a blanket and just take in the breathtaking views. There’s a ton of boats coming in and out of this area. It’s safe, family friendly, and dog friendly. We came in August and the weather was absolutely perfect!
  • This part of Bar Harbor is beautiful and full of activities to do. Shopping,food,entertainment, and so much more. Our favorite part was sunset where you can sit and relax or go on nice walking paths and even go walk down a bridge where you can be closer to the water and get amazing views. Parking:lots of spots to choose from and even if you aren't right next to the shops, there are many parking spots down the road and only have to go about .5 mile.
