Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens in Boothbay, Maine, opened in 2007 and has since become known as the “People’s Garden.”  The garden “invites visitors of all ages and abilities to create and to explore meaningful connections to plants and nature at their own pace.”

 

The idea for a botanical garden in mid-coast Maine originated in 1991 with a small group of locals.  Their hope was to build a stunning public garden within rocky coastal forest.  Over the next 16 years, the group worked hard to make their dream a reality.  They gathered together hundreds of volunteers and some even used their own homes as collateral to bring their idea to life.

 

Finally, in 2007, Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens opened to the public.  It is 295 acres, including 17 devoted solely to native plants of Maine and other species that thrive in northern coastal climates.  As of 2019, it was the largest botanical garden in New England.  It has a section of tidal saltwater habitat plus notable gardens like rhododendron, five senses, children’s, woodland, hillside, arbor, and meditation.  There is a native butterfly house, too.

 

After all the planning and care that went into the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens, it’s no wonder the area has become one of Maine’s top-rated destinations.
