Easy to miss, no big sign to make you stop. Do some research and find out where this place is, then find it. You will have a great walk through some meticulously maintained gardens. Medium sized...not too big, not too small. Plan on spending about an hour there, but bring your camera. We went in mid-June and caught the tail... More

We had been in the National Park all morning and wound up in Northeast Harbor. We knew the town from staying there in 2012 and we headed straight for the garden. It was lovely. Here is is July and the azaleas are still in bloom. The park is wonderfully kept and well worth an hour of your time.

Beautiful small garden that is open to the public. 5.00 optional donation. Lovely Japanese style meditation garden sculptures, reflecting pond, seats, green areas.

We missed the Acela and rhododendron blooms and only can image how spectacular that would be! Lovely stroll through beautiful park like setting.

What a delightful stop on a rainy afternoon. With our umbrellas held high, we walked the paths of this beautiful Japanese garden admiring the many blooming azaleas in a rainbow of colors! On a sunny day, it would be nice to spend more time. There was no charge but a place to leave a donation.

Peaceful and quiet. We visited when the azaleas were blooming, just lovely. Take the time to walk the pathways and just enjoy the peace after the sometimes frantic pace of the park.

We thought it would be nice, but did not dream it would be this nice. This is a 3 acre beautifully maintained garden that blends Japanese garden design with the natural landscaping of the area. There are several footpaths and benches, a sand garden, several bridges, a trickling stream, and a pond with ducks. During our visit in mid-June there... More

I think we must have gone between blooming times. It looks like there are several blooming times throughout the growing season and we seemed to be there when little was actually in bloom. Even so it was very pretty. As there are many slight elevations over rocks in the pathways it is not particularly suited to mobility impaired people. All... More

Amazingly well-maintained paths, shrubs, bushes, ponds, trees, etc. throughout this multi-level garden. As others have said, be on the lookout for signs for parking..it's easy to miss them.

It is a little hard to find. There are two parking areas. The first gravel driveway has two handicapped spots near restroom facilities, and the second drive has more non-handicapped spots. We thoroughly enjoyed this garden. It is tranquil and beautiful. There are many spots to sit and view the garden. Early June would be best for azalea viewing in... More
