Please join us in welcoming Charlotte Rhoades Park to our Chamber community.
"Charlotte Rhoades, a resident of Southwest Harbor, owned this property in the1950’s. In 1978 the property was given to the town in her memory with the request that it be used as a quiet park for children and their parents.
"The Butterfly Garden at the Charlotte Rhoades Park was established in 1998 to promote conservation education and gardening instruction in the community. Volunteers work throughout the season with school children and adults to learn more about butterfly habitat and observation. Suggestive of butterfly wings, the garden beds were designed by Bar Harbor landscape architect Bruce John Riddell and includes perennials, annuals, and shrubs that are butterfly host plants."
Please take time to visit our treasured pocket garden while you are in the area. You can learn more about the Garden, and it's programs and activities, at their website: http://www.rhoadesbutterflygarden.org/index.html
