Committed To Becoming More Age-Friendly
Gardiner United States of America
Centrally located in the heart of Maine and at the confluence of I-95 and I-295, the city of Gardiner offers history, convenience, and a wealth of shopping and outdoor activities to visitors seeking arts and entertainment, scenic recreational trails, a waterfront park and boat launch on the tidal Kennebec River. Gardiner is an unspoiled, authentic New England community with a historic downtown, and is located within hours of Maine’s famous coast and mountain regions, and less than an hour’s drive from Portland. Come see for yourself and experience Maine’s best kept secret.
The age friendly initiative rounds out and balances these values by bringing attention to people of all ages.
