Overview

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!

We did not actually pay to go inside, as the trail is only 1/2 mile and the price was $12 each. Obviously just planted with seasonals, too.

Nice well maintained botanical garden. People were very friendly. Nice plant shop where you can buy various plants that are grown in the gardens. Various themes through out the gardens - nice stroll on garden paths.

We always seek out gardens in the places we visit, they are refreshing and always diverse. This is no exception. Clever use of native plantings are used throughout with educational signs along the easily assessable paths. Perfect for wheelchairs. The imagination of the master gardeners...More

This garden is located on the "hillside" - carved out of the forest. I has been expertly played out. I was there in July - when most of flowers are in high glory. Such a peaceful place to walk around and admire what you can...More

I love to visit this every summer when I’m in Anchorage. The season is so short but the flowers are beautiful and very large, especially the Blue Poppies.

We enjoyed seeing all the flowers. It is not that big and it isn't crowded. The flowers are well marked and you can walk at your leisure.

This was a great activity. It is very organized and so much to see! Even in the "off" season we found it to be very interesting. Especially loved the Junior Master Gardener plot!

Loved the differently designed gardens. Although many of the plants were in their fall dress...there was still joy to be had meandering along the path. I particularly enjoyed the massive stone container rock garden. These gardens are intertwined with the natural woodland flora. Although Alaska...More
