We visited the Botanical Garden our first day in Anchorage! The greenery is amazing! Love the different species of flowers and what a cute idea to put a vegetable garden in the truck bed! Cute!

One of my favorite things to do is to take pictures of plants (is that weird?), and this is a great place to do so. Nothing out of the ordinary, but a great place for a stroll and to see a variety of flowers, ferns,...More

Well laid out. I think it's an asset to the community. The volunteers have really done a great job. They have special pricing for non residents which I feel is too high for what we were able to take in.

The botanical garden was a pleasant surprise and a nice way to unwind as we were winding down our vacation. The plants were spectacular, particularly from the size aspect. Everything was 50% to 200% larger than what we can grow in our garden in Nevada.

Quick visit to the garden revealed a rich collection of temperate climate staples as well as some surprises. Campbell airstrip trails are just a few minutes' drive away. Well worth the time after driving to the garden.

The parking is not so good but there is a strip mall parking lot less than 3 blocks away. The walking tour is of moderate difficulty. The pathways are wide enough for wheelchairs and walkers/canes. There is a very wide range of native plants, mushrooms...More

This is a gem of a place to visit (over and over again) in Anchorage off of Campbell Airstrip Road off Tudor. The volunteers who work and support these gardens do a fabulous job. Every month different flowers bloom. There are many different paths throughout...More

A small burgeoning botanical garden. Not many flowering plants in August, but still nice to walk around and see the local species.

Thank SSTravler
Management response:

August for us is fall with the hardest and Harvest Day close at hand. For those wanting to taste some of the produce grown here, be sure to visit during shop hours between 10-4.
