Brewer Riverwalk and Children’s Garden:
Located on the water front along the Penobscot River, this park features themed plantings, walking paths, a waterfall and an area for events such as weddings or performances. The Children’s Garden has become much more visible to the public as the much anticipated waterfront trail is now complete.
The City of Brewer began developing the waterfront in the early 2000s, starting with a large shoreland stabilization project and the creation of the Children’s Garden. The first half of the current Riverwalk running from Hardy Street to the Joshua Chamberlain Bridge opened to the public in 2013. Now the second phase of the Riverwalk is completed, doubling the length of the trail. The new phase runs from Penobscot Street to the Joshua Chamberlain Bridge. There is a tunnel under the bridge joining the two phases of the trail.
