While it can get busy at times, it is mostly quiet. This riverside park is a nice place in Gardiner to unwind and relax. There is a public boat launch here, so there is some action and its great to overhear what people are saying to each other as they finish up a day fishing or boating. Many workers from... More

Awesome place to people watch, drink coffee and enjoy the view! Love the water, plenty of parking, close to downtown. In contrast to where I live now. Gardiner Montana.

Take the pups and walk along the river, sit on a grassy slope to watch a loon dive under the surface, look up to see an eagle soaring overhead or be surprised as a fish jumps up from the depths and sends out expanding circles of ripples. On many afternoons it is a quiet refuge but it can also hop... More

Not too much to do....We took a walk and looked at the water. Lots of people were getting on boats and jet skis. Its a nice park for a family picnic and maybe a little fishing.

While staying at The Stone Turret, we took a walk to this park. Great little walk for the morning. We enjoyed the waterfront view and watching boats being launched.

Gardiner has a lovely waterfront area, with a great boat launch, a pier, plenty of parking, and just a nice area to walk around or have a picnic. Just beware the sneaky seagulls!

I love the Waterfront Park. It is a great place to sit and aborb the beauty of the area or fish or have a picnic or just walk around. There is a large parking lot and a sidewalk for walking. My favorite is watching the moon come up over the Kennebec River. Whenever I go it is always neat and... More

Well-kept boat launch with docks for easy boat/kayak/canoe access to the Kennebec River. Grassy area and benches for picnic-ing, Frisbee-playing, etc. Paved area with ample parking for boat trailers. The Rail Trail starts here and ends in Augusta, 6-7 miles north. Walking distance to shops, restaurants, ATM and grocery store.

This place has a wide board walk to walk on and enjoy the view of the river and changing trees. There was also paved walking trails and many benches and picnic tables. I also noticed cameras, which gives you a little bit more security.
