Lots of parking space, green space, benches, and pier walking area. Great spot to boat watch and people watch. Bring a picnic or grab something nearby on Gardiner's Water Street. New rest area is a much needed addition.

This river front area in Gardiner, ME is really very picturesque. There is parking, beautiful views of the river, benches to sit and a nice walk way. The area is very well maintained and clean. I greatly enjoyed my visit.
