Master Plan

The Alaska Botanical Garden’s “Master Plan” was developed through the hard work and dedication of numerous people (including many of Anchorage’s leading gardeners who participated on various ABG boards and committees over decades).

In 2002, the original master plan developed by Jeff Dillon was revised and updated by Carol R. Johnson and Associates (CRJ), following a series of community meetings, surveys, and work sessions.  The plan includes numerous themed gardens, a visitor’s center, and nature trails – amidst the back drop of Alaska’s boreal forest.

This plan honors the ideas, and most importantly the resolve, of the Garden’s founders who aimed to create a world class garden to promote the value of plants to society.

Below is an image which illustrates some of the general concepts about the Master Plan. A copy of the Master Plan is available upon request.
