Alaska Botanical Garden - Review

Like the rest of the places around Anchorage, the wildlife and plant life here is spectacular but standard…but a lot more attractively organised. 110 acres of spruce and birch woodland cover 1,200+ species of plants, and you’ll probably catch a bear or a moose among them. The highlights include:

  • Lile’s Garden: Landscaped gardening containing the Gold Medal Peony collections and Prinulas.
  • Lower Perennial Garden: Peonies and poppies are fantastic in July and June.
  • Herb Garden: Native American medicinal herbs. Fascinating!
  • Rock Garden: Alpine plants and tufa rocks
  • Anchorage Heritage Garden: Old style garden
  • Wildflower Trail
  • An Alaskan Kitchen Garden Exhibit
  • Entrance Kiosk Area & Shade Garden
  • Lowenfels Family Nature Trail (1.1 miles)

Events planned at the Garden must be booked and paid for in advance.

Alaska Botanical Garden, Anchorage Reviews

  • The gardens here are beautiful, thoughtfully planned, and lovingly maintained. Signeage and plant choices inform the visitor about native vegetation and ecosystems, while demonstrating the variety of non-native plants that can grow and thrive in a sub-Arctic climate. Several garden designs have been chosen to illustrate aspects of local history and culture. In addition, the botanical garden is an active part of the community, offering classes, day camps for kids in the summer, and social events. The botanical garden is ever-changing and growing, in terms of both the vegetation and the infrastructure. It is well worth a visit.

  • Small facility packed with many varieties of plants. Our visit is towards the end of the summer, so the various gardens were not in peak bloom, but still a nice sanctuary for a quiet walk. Great to see many young people strolling and identifying flowers by name! Good family place. Gift shop disappointingly small and the potted plants available were quite leggy. Virtually no stock of seed packets. The garden seems to rely heavily on volunteers for operations. The Gardens are on the left after the turn from Tudor. The sign for the adjacent secondary school is more prominent than the sign for the Garden.

  • The Gardens are very well kept and maintained. Perfect for a quick little quiet outing within the city limits. The half mile paved trail takes you next to every sculpted they have for your viewing pleasure. The two mile nature trail is nice for a scenic walk through the woods. Port a' potties are on site next to the herb garden and actual bathrooms are right past the front entrance on the side of the glass walled building. Overall not bad for a small fee.

  • I have been coming here since the start and been a member many of those years, it is amazing how far the garden has come. If you are from outside Alaska with a different climate, or from a large city with a very old botanical garden, it will not be what you are used to. But it is well worth a visit and a great place for a walk.

  • Website said admission was by donation. We were a family of two adults and four children. Two ladies at the front told us $12 per each adult and $10 per each child. We turned around and left. $64 for a family to walk through a garden! Forget it!! Update your website if you're going to actually have admission prices. We can get an annual membership to the zoo for that price. Ridiculous!!
