Back to: Acadia Natl Park

 

 

(Work in Progress.)

  

There are 2 gardens in or around Acadia

National Park. 

 

I accidentally stumbled across the Asticou Azalea Garden

while making a right turn at an intersection and getting a

glimpse of the garden and following some cars into an

obscure parking lot.  Wow, there it was, a beautifully inspired

and landscaped Japanese garden.

 

I visited a second garden, the Wild Gardens of Acadia a

couple days  later.  It is the total opposite of the meticulously

maintained Japanese garden and totally natural except for

a raised wooden walkway to keep the visitors out of the

natural swamp-like environment.
