Take in the beauty of Alaska's native flora and northern-hardy perennials at this tranquil garden located amidst 110 acres of boreal forest. View perennial, herb, alpine rock and wildflower gardens. Walk on nature trails, enjoy our Gold Medal Peony Collection and visit our Anchorage Heritage Garden. The main paved loop is about a half mile. ABG is a completely outdoor facility with a small gift shop. There are currently no greenhouses or indoor facilities. We are open year round, but snow covered in the winter. The fence surrounding the garden keeps the moose out, but bears can come and go. ABG is a private non-profit, we received no state or municipal funding. ABG is supported by entry fees, memberships, donations, program fees, gift shop sales and corporate sponsorship. If you have any questions please feel free to visit our website or call the office. We hope you enjoy your visit and thank you for supporting the garden!

Do not visit these gardens if you are expecting to see well groomed massive flowerbeds. These are working gardens that exist in a climate that is difficult to garden in. My son and I found them to be groomed but not with huge lawns. There...More

We had read a review saying this was "small" but my husband and I spent about an hour and a half walking around the garden/woods area. We did not walk the entire garden but it was worth at least 100 of our pictures we took!...More

My wife and I visited the Alaska Botanical Gardens on our recent visit to Anchorage. We have visited many many Bot Gardens around the world as my wife is a Horticulturist and has an obvious interest in gardens. We were extremely disappointed in these. Basically,...More

It is obvious the garden is tended by staff who are enthusiastic about local plants. The 1/2 mile pathway takes you through a peaceful walk, punctuated by moderately sized groupings of local plants. It is a good way to spend an hour or two, out...More

Are you interested in plants? This is a well cared for woodland garden in Anchorage. Your modest donation to this nonprofit gets you into rock, peony, herb and educational veggie gardens. There are many native plants. They are even labeled! Amy did a great job...More

In this often wet and frigid climate, it's amazing that such beautiful flowers grows in such abundance. Tended by proud volunteers, the Botanical Garden is worth a visit.
