Norumbega Park

Norumbega Park, located in the heart of downtown Bangor, Maine, is an ideal place for lunch or a mid-morning or mid-afternoon snack. The scenic park comprises an island in the mind-soothing, picturesque little Kenduskeag Stream. The park was once the site of Bangor's original Customs House, post office, and Norumbega Hall. They were destroyed in the Great Fire of 1911. Currently, the park houses the War Memorial, a statue by Brewer native Charles Eugene Tefft. This memorial, which lies between Franklin and Central streets, honors all those who have died in war for the United States.
