Alaska Botanical Garden

Alaska Botanical Garden Review

The garden showcases perennials hardy enough to make it in South Central Alaska in several large display gardens, a pergola-enclosed herb garden, and a rock garden amid 110 acres of mixed boreal forest. There's a 1-mile nature trail loop to Campbell Creek, with views of the Chugach Range and a wildflower trail between the display gardens. Interpretive signs guide visitors and identify plants along the trail. Children can explore the garden with an activity-filled duffel bag. Docent tours are available at 1 pm daily June through August; in addition, you can schedule your own tour by appointment between June 1 and September 15. The gift shop and retail nursery are open Tuesday through Sunday late May to mid-September.
