Alaska Botanical Garden


The Alaska Botanical Garden is a 110 acre (44.5-ha) botanical garden located at 4601 Campbell Airstrip Road, Anchorage, Alaska, USA. The garden opened in 1993, is open year-round, and charges admission.
The garden's land consists mainly of spruce and birch forest, of which only about 10% is developed. Wildlife (moose and sometimes bears) are frequently seen within the garden itself. The garden currently includes:
Over 1,100 species of perennials in the Upper and Lower Perennial Gardens (of which some 150 are native to Alaska)
An herb garden
A rock garden with over 350 types of alpine plants
A wildflower walk
The 1.1-mile (1.8-km) Lowenfels Family Nature Trail
