Come visit the Idaho Botanical Garden, our tranquil grounds display native and non-native plants in inspirational ways. The Garden is wonderful to see on your own or with a group.
The Idaho Botanical garden is a wonderful place to visit year-round as the seasons change and new displays are installed. When you pay admission you will receive a map of the grounds to help you navigate. If you bring young children with you, ask to borrow a Family Backpack full of items to help you share the Garden with young ones. While strolling at relaxed pace, it takes a person approximately 1.5 hours to see all the features. Don’t forget to check out the Family Backpacks!
Group tours led by Gardens staff (depending on availability) are offered by reservations. To book guided tours groups must have a minimum of 10 people. There is no extra charge for a tour when they are held during normal garden hours. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 208-343-8649.
