Since 2003, Pemaquid Watershed Association (now part of Coastal Rivers) has partnered with the Town of Bristol Parks & Recreation Commission to offer a nature center at Pemaquid Beach. Beachcombers’ Nature Center now has a new home in the beautiful recently completed pavilion at Pemaquid Beach Park.

During the summer months, visitors to the park are invited to stop in to borrow books, enjoy fun learning activities, browse displays, and play games. There is no additional cost to visit the Nature Center, but Pemaquid Beach Park charges an entrance fee.

We are hoping to reinstate the popular weekly Touch Tank – stay tuned!

Occasionally there are special events scheduled such as educational workshops, bird walks, cultural programs, and more. All programs are open to the public. Please see our calendar for details about special events.
