About Cascade Park, Bangor

This park was built in 1934 on low swampy land across the street from the Bangor Water Works. This place also supplied city water from the Penobscot River which was known for its different system of water features which includes a twenty-foot-tall grotto with a waterfall carved into the hillside and stabilized with a battered stone wall. At the bottom of the cascade you can also find water from a small concrete pool flowed into a narrow concrete “brook”. Then it went into a larger oval pool. Visitors during the daytime generally flock to see the oval pool’s fountain, which projects a programmed series of sprays, domes, and jets 25 feet in the air and is a visual treat. At night the fountain illuminates with the help of underwater multi-coloured lights, while the waterfall lights up with coloured floodlights from above. 1,000 to 3,000 automobiles enter the park every other night to see the exuberant displays. Make one of them yours!

Cascade Park, Bangor Reviews - Write a Review

  • Easy walkways, a nice little escape just a half mile from downtown. The fountain and benches offer peace and tranquility, an artificial waterfall for kids and teens, and some wooded and fielded trails just up a hill from it all.

  • Underrated park just outside of the city. A nice place to sit and eat lunch, or go for a quiet walk, or catch Pokemon, if that's your thing.

  • Beautiful waterfall and fountain in the spring and summer season great place to have lunch with family or friends or to forget the days worries for awhile

  • I've been going there for 60 years. When the weather is good, it's a great place to go to eat lunch.

  • This is a special place - not just a beautiful park, but a place to walk, where you can choose from level walking or more challenging terrain up the hill. It's a great comfort to those tending to loved ones in hospital nearby, or to visit to shake off stressful appointments. Lovely fountains and landscaping, history, and river view. Wheelchair accessible.
