Who would imagine

A very quaint place to enjoy the scenery but realizing the temperate climate that Juneau has that allows these plants to thrive.

This is a very interesting rainforest garden. The upside down trees with flowers in the roots are great, and the store and food tent is really pretty. But what makes it special is the staff that are kind and attentive. They are happy to share the rich gardens and amazing natural riches at every corner. Great spot for seeing bald... More

Our visit here was part of an excursion package and what a delight it turned out to be - if you like this sort of thing: basically it is a short trail around a couple's large garden which has been stocked entirely with indigenous flora and fauna. They provide a handout to tell you what's what. Very tranquil place -... More

Visited Rainforest Garden and was very disappointed! Where are the upside down trees???? I realized that there is another garden tour, called Glacier Gardens Rainforest Adventure - what a fabulous place and worth the trip! Check out Glacier Gardens website - it's an awesome place!

We visited in May 2015 from a Princess cruise. It was wonderful. We are older people, and not up to hiking long distances. The creator did an excellent job in adding a trail through the rainforest and keeps it well maintained (I asked if they had to weed, and they do!). If you have limited mobility, here is a place...

We stopped here on our way to Mendenhall Glacier . Great little green spot . Amazing that the plants grow in what we in the lower 48 consider a harsh climate . There are a few items for purchase if you want to take home a little souvenir . We spent about a half hour, and enjoyed the beauty of... More

This is a rainforest graden developed by a couple over 25 years. It has a good range of the plants you will see around Alaska. Takes about half and hour to walk around. You can see as part of a tour around Juneau particularly to the Maidenhall Glacier.

This is one of my favorite green spots in Juneau. The garden is small, and is owned by a very nice couple who are usually very helpful to visitors. It's a short walk, so I wouldn't recommend it for jogging, just a nice place to go relax and hear the birds.

The rainforest is a simple walk but I beleive requires to be part of a tour for access. We bundled with the Mendenhall Glaicer and a Whale Watching Tour byGastineau Guiding via Celebrity Cruise Lines. Our Tour guide was great and did an excellant job of sharing info about the rainforest including pointing out evidence of recent bear activity, though... More
