  3. Asticou Azalea Garden
3 Sound Drive, Northeast Harbor, ME 04662

The Asticou Azalea Garden in Northeast Harbor, Maine is a popular visitor attraction. It was created by lifelong resident of the village, Charles Kenneth Savage in 1956. Savage also created Reef Point Estate in nearby Bar Harbor.

The Garden and its pond are open to the public during daylight hours from May 1 to October 31. It features a selection of rhododendrons and azaleas, including the Rhododendron canadense, Maine's native azalea. Styled after a Japanese stroll garden, the fine-gravel paths are raked regularly in a manner that suggests flowing water. There is also a sand garden, where this effect is repeated but with the addition of stones, which are meant to represent islands.
