250th Anniversary Park

250th Anniversary Park is an in-town park located on the banks of the Androscoggin River just below the Brookfield Renewable Energy hydroelectric dam. This park offers scenic views of the river, a fishing area on the bank, and serves as the canoe and kayak put-in for those portaging around the dam from the Mill Street Canoe Portage located upstream.

The Cooks Corner Gateway consists of four 75-foot long beds of daylilies in the median islands at the Cooks Corner intersection of Bath and Gurnet Roads.
