Alaska Botanical Garden
The Alaska Botanical Garden is a public garden dedicated enhancing the beauty and value of plant material through education, preservation, recreation, and research
The Garden is located in Anchorage, Alaska, just South of Tudor Road at 4601 Campbell Airstrip Road, adjacent to Far North Bicentennial Park. Bordering the Garden to the East is the north fork of Campbell Creek. Chugach State Park is nearby.
About the Garden
The Garden is comprised of 110 acres of Boreal Forest, with nature trails connecting the Gardens and points of interest.
With over 1,100 species of hardy perennials, and 150 native plant species, the Alaska Botanical Garden is a great place to experience the abundance of the summer sub-arctic growing season and to learn about flora native to Southcentral Alaska.
From May through September you will find flowering plants and shrubs in two perennial gardens, a formal herb garden, an alpine rock garden, and a wildflower walk. A new "East" Garden hosts a Gold Medal Peony collection.
