Welcome!

The Charlotte Rhoades Park and Butterfly Garden is located in Southwest Harbor, on Mount Desert Island. For visitors of all ages, it is exciting to experience a coastal butterfly habitat in Downeast Maine and see how careful organic gardening practices can sustain and protect butterflies. We hope you will be a frequent visitor to the park! Learn more about us on our video.
