Anchorage forest - Law Office of Jennifer Messick LawIn today’s hectic world, it can be nearly impossible to slow down once in a while. So many other things take up our time and energy. But in order to maintain appreciation for our wonderful lives (not to mention our sanity!), it’s important to take a break.

One way to do this is to visit the beautiful Anchorage Botanical Garden, a local attraction that allows you to quite literally stop and smell the roses.

The Anchorage Botanical Garden is really a misnomer, as this “garden” offers an amazing 110-acre boreal forest complete with connecting nature trails. This expansive nature preserve includes three perennial gardens, an herb garden, a rock garden, a wildflower trail, and a self-guided nature trail. Much of the Garden is in a natural state, with cultivated gardens sprinkled throughout.

The Anchorage Botanical Garden is committed to enhancing the beauty of Anchorage through education, preservation, research, and recreation.  More than 170 dedicated volunteers as well as a number of local businesses contribute each year to make sure that Anchorage residents and visitors can enjoy the forest and gardens.

The Garden is open year round during daylight hours, so you have plenty of time to enjoy this local attraction. It’s a perfect place to explore by yourself or with family and friends.

We encourage you to support the Anchorage Botanical Garden by attending one of its many tours or events.
