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 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

I have always enjoyed botanical gardens and this place isn't any different. I was actually doing a whereigo cache where it guides you through the area and asks you questions. It is nice to do sometimes. Entrance fee was minimal but these always help to...More

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

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
