Summer in the Park with L.L.Bean

Every summer, right here in our hometown of Freeport, Maine, we invite our friends, family and neighbors to join us for a few months of outdoor fun at our Summer in the Park Series. We’d be thrilled to have you join us this year – the celebrations will be more special than ever.

    We are planning a big trip to the North East this summer. From Nebraska it’s quite a drive but we are looking forward to seeing your beautiful part of the country. L.L. Bean is on the trip itinerary.
