Botanical Garden

I think the Millinocket area would be the perfect place to build a botanical garden. Boothbay Harbor, Maine has a beautiful large botanical garden. It has 270 acres of gardens, trails, water features and exhibits to explore, and there are plenty of places to just sit and relax. It has a few play areas for children, a cafe and a gift shop. This particular botanical garden has a coastal flair, but one in Millinocket could play off of a North Woods theme. I think this would be a very complementary attraction to Baxter State Park. They charge about $16 for the day for adults and $8 for children or you can purchase a membership.http://www.mainegardens.org/
