Alaska Botanical Garden, a public garden is dedicated to enhance the beauty and value of plants for recreational purposes. You have here northern horticulture and native plants showcased in a 110 acre spruce and birch woodland. The Garden is located just south of Tudor Road at Campbell Airstrip Road. Bordering the Garden to the East is the north fork of Campbell Creek which has a summer Chinook salmon run. Chugach State Park is nearby. Planning for the Alaska Botanical Garden started in 1983 for the creation of an arboretum. The first gardens were planted with the opening taking place in July 1993. Much of the land remains in a natural state with individual “gardens-within-the-Garden” interconnected by trails through the boreal forest. The garden currently includes the herb garden, a rock garden, a wildflower walk and the 1.1-mile Lowenfels Family Nature Trail.
