    My dog made more dog and people friends! It's a wonderful beach for racing around and saying hello to all the other dogs.

    Visitors shod know that this is not a town beach. Parsons Beach is owned by the Parson family decendents and has been so forever. By their good graces you are welcome to try to secure one of very few free parking spots, bicycle to the beach or walk a long way and enjoy one of the finest Beach's in the area. Otherwise, buy a beach pass and go to the public beach. Be informed before posting about wealthy people being exclusive.

    This house was feeling its age when last visited in July, 2019, but the good news is the owners have finally implemented a restoration that, at least from the outside, looks to be near completion.

    Went in the morning during Labor Day weekend, not crowded. Beach is beautiful and rocky. Had to pay $25 to park for just a couple hours!

    Maine Art Hill has a good variety of quality art works. The staff is friendly and professional. The staff is also knowledgeable of the works and the artists. There is a variety of prices for the works.

    The Kennebunk Free Library is just wonderful. A library not only with everything in which you may be interested but knowledgeable and helpful staff to find it and steer you in the right direction when you are unsure what you re after. Good parking great central location and quiet.

    Finally stopped in to visit this place before the mad tourist rush. It's a small museum but has a nice collection of local artifacts, old shipbuilding tools, textiles, historic photographs, 19th century and contemporary art, some furnishings and other items, and it has 4-5 rotating exhibitions throughout the year. Its five buildings comprise the oldest block of buildings in Kennebunk and range from 1810 to 1860. It's a great way to learn the fascinating history of the Kennebunks and York County. It also has a small gift shop.

    Dogs of all sizes welcome and it was a fun place for them. It was kept clean when we were there and all the people were friendly.

    This place has amzaing, real deal architectural salvage. If you’re looking to pick or renovate your home with vintage and antique items this place is for you. A hidden gem for sure.

    We met the artist on our visit. She showed us how she created her seascapes. On thing I particularly enjoyed was the wide range of prices. One could get a small painting relatively inexpensively, which I did. Worth a stop if interested in art gallaries.

    A great little taste of nature and hiking when visiting Kennebunkport. Our naturalist was super-knowledgable and friendly. The walk is a bit steep in the beginning and it can be a bit slippery. You will want good hiking shoes. After the walk, we made it just in time to have our complimentary coffee and pastry at Boulangerie - excellent!

    After visiting the Chamber of Commerce across Water Street, I went over to Rotary Park also on Water Street.

    Very few people passing by on US-1, which is adjacent to the park, would be aware of the park’s presence because it’s considerably lower than the road.

    I spent about 30 minutes there. It was a peaceful place beside the Mousam River.

    There was a dam with a shallow spillway right near US-1 and not visible from there.

    A little further downriver, there were two very shallow waterfalls. The moving water created the sounds of a babbling brook.

    There was a gazebo and a magnificent tree – oak, I believe - that still had almost all its leaves in November.

    Some park benches were spread out in the park. Two were near the fence close to the river. Instead of facing the river, they faced the other way toward the street. I found that rather odd.

    There were two info boards. One was about the downtown being a museum.

    Embedded in the brick walkway was the Rotary seal.

    I also saw several shrubs and trees bearing red berries. The trees near the street appeared to be bird cherry trees. The shrubs near the gazebo appeared to be bittersweet. Both added some color at a time of year when most foliage was gone.

    During my visit, a man was walking his dog there.

    I enjoyed my visit and got in some walking.

    I rate Rotary Park at 4.50 and can recommend a visit.

    We've been to the Kennebunkport area many times and I was looking for a few different outdoor experiences. I came across the Secret Garden as part of the Kennebunk Land Trust and was intrigued that it was "hidden" behind a cemetery. Indeed it was. We had a hard time finding the entrance to the 1.5 mile walk, but finally did and walked on in. It was a beautiful late fall afternoon, so all conditions were optimal. I just wasn't sold. Unless you come from the desert southwest and have never seen foliage or smelled pine, I would recommend the beaches instead. Not that it wasn't lovely and well-maintained, but hey. If you come from New England like we do, where's the interest?

    This was not the first time we stopped here during what purported to be business hours posted on the websjte- door was locked, nobody home. Not very good for business; won't bother to try again.
