  • Went to the spring conference hosted by ABG. AWESOME group of people who are passionate about helping others succeed in Gardening.
  • I have been in Alaska visiting family quite a few times and no one is as friendly as the staff at the Botanical Gardens. It's right in Anchorage but you feel as if you've left the city completely. It's so peaceful, beautiful, and serene. And the staff are so helpful and educated on all species within the garden. Highly recommend!
  • What a great place to spend an afternoon. They offer some great classes too.
  • Big property with a wide variety of plants. Their trails need a little work because they are not the most clear. We got a bit lost. Beautiful place to spend a morning. Wear insect repellent.
  • Designed to have blooms throughout the summer. Amazing that there is much to see in September just weeks before the snow will likely fall.
