  • 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!

Alaska Botanical Garden Reviews & Ratings

  • What a Beautiful place. Such knowledgeable staff. Thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Thank you, Stacey. Your love for what you do truly shows.

  • Very relaxing and gorgeous. If you are a plant lover you will really enjoy it. They have a bunch of different sections you can check out, like an Herb Garden. It blends really well with the natural greenway that surrounds it

  • It was quite a nice walk in the woods. It's pretty small though, compared to other botanical gardens I've been to, and most of the property is undeveloped woods. I liked the gardens I saw, but additionally I'd like to see a water garden with maybe a koi pond, and maybe a water fountain. An orchid pavilion would be nice. There's lots of room for development and improvement.

  • Excellent community resource. Come see what the plants you own can do. A natural setting interspersed with stylized gardens, formal and semi-formal. They also have a shuttle that takes you from the log cabin visitors center directly to ABG. Runs on the hour starting at 9AM till 11AM breaks at Noon , then starts again at 1PM. Children's Gardens and programs, plus a garden center with excellent plants for sale.

  • I always try and visit the local Botanical garden when traveling through a town. I'm from Florida, and I really enjoyed the diversity of Alaska's Botanical garden. Beautifully kept, friendly staff.
