large area, plenty of flowers in bloom, we like various kinds and colors. very interesting layout. Alaska grows many kinds of flowers in three seasons, but especially in summer when the long days encourage hyper growth

The gardens were beautiful. They are very well cared for and have a lovely area for children. If I were to visit again I would bring a book and spend more time there.

The flowers were beautiful and a couple of hidden statues were found on our adventure. This was one the most beautiful botanical gardens I have been to in a long time. I recommend to everyone even if you have small children. Cute hedge mazes.

Princess Lodge does have vans - I would ask if they could drop you off at Georgeson. But you may need to call a cab; it's between 4 and 5 miles.
