Azalea Pond gets its name from the century-old azalea plants that crown its southern edge. Their fiery pink blooms are a spectacular sight in the spring. With its rustic bridge and benches overlooking the water, the scenic area evokes the feel of the Adirondacks – the exact intent of the Park's designers.
Restored by the Conservancy in 2004, the pond is fed by a tumbling stream called the Gill. The area is one of the most active bird-watching spots in the Park.
