Visit St. Anthony’s Franciscan Friary

Written by: Aimsel Ponti
Public Garden St. Anthony's Franciscan Friary

Maine has more than three dozen public gardens waiting for you to walk through, gaze at and just experience the pure beauty of. Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens in Boothbay Harbor is perhaps the most well known, but others exists in places like Orono, Augusta, South Paris and Kennebunk. Speaking of Kennebunk, that’s where you’ll find St. Anthony Franciscan Friary. Just a stone’s throw from Kennebunkport’s Dock Square, this place is one of southern Maine’s best kept secrets with an English park of lovely gardens complete with shrines and monuments where you’re invited “to rest, to mediate, and to pray.”
