DownEast and Acadia celebrates its beautiful gardens throughout the area all year long, but especially in spring and summer when they are at their most colorful.
From the gardens at famous homes such as Roosevelt Campobello International Park or the Woodlawn Museum, to the spectacular spring show at the Asticou Azalea Gardens to the beautiful legacy left by Beatrix Farrand (niece of the writer Edith Wharton) at Garland Farm or at the College of the Atlantic on Mount Desert Island, you will find all kinds of gardens for all tastes and all seasons. You will also want to visit Amen Farm Gardens in Brooklin with over 150 uncommon trees. Don't miss the Wild Gardens of Acadia and the Nature Center at Sieur de Monts Spring either!
Also be sure to keep your eye open for special garden tours in towns and local areas where you can visit private gardens for tours not normally open to the public.
