Located steps from Camden center, the park is well shaded and a nice place to have a quiet take out lunch. There are also clean bathrooms . Across the street is the entrance to Mt. Battie for a minimal charge drive to the top.

We came with a school group and the kids had a ball. There are fields for frisbee and games like tug of war. There are plenty of bathroom facilities. You can clime to the top of Mount Battie. What a great park!
