Acadia National Park on Mount Desert Island in Maine

Wild Gardens of Acadia

The Wild Gardens of Acadia reflects the typical habitats of Mount Desert Island. Over 300 native plant species are organized into nine display areas and labeled for easy identification. The garden is managed by the Bar Harbor Garden Club and is open year round. No entrance fee is required.

There are several interwoven paths leading from open spaces to thick bushes and trees. Close by are some very nice walking paths and hiking trails such as the Jesup Trail.

Wild Gardens of Acadia shares the general space with the Nature Center, Sieur de Monts Spring, and the original Abbe Museum whose focus is on the Native American culture and its history in Maine.

The garden, as well as the aforementioned, is located about 2 miles south of Bar Harbor near the intersection of Route 3 and the Park Loop Road. The Island Explorer Shuttle Bus has a pickup and drop-off point in the parking lot.
