The Garden is located in Anchorage, 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, which has a summer Chinook (King) salmon run. Chugach State Park is nearby.

The Gardens & Trails

With over 1,100 species of hardy perennials, and 150 native plant species, the Alaska Botanical Garden is the 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 (and occasionally into October) you will find flowering plants and shrubs in two perennial gardens (Lilies Garden and the Lower Perennial Garden), a formal Herb Garden, an alpine Rock garden, and a Wildflower Trail. A new Anchorage Heritage Garden is nearly complete just in time for the Anchorage Centennial in 2015. The Lowenfels Family Nature Trail and Forest Health Trail offer easy opportunities for day hikes, with the potential to glimpse wildlife.
