In the Neighborhood

The Co-op is lucky to be in such an amazing historic downtown community. We’re less than a five minute walk from the beautiful Waterfront Park along the Kennebec River. Here you’ll find a number of places to sit offering peaceful views of the river. Also downtown are the Gardiner Public Library, Johnson Hall, and a number of other fantastic local businesses. There is always something great going on in Gardiner, you’ll have to stop in to see for yourself.
