The Idaho Botanical Garden began in 1984 and leases 33 acres from the state of Idaho with approximately 14 acres currently cultivated. The Garden is located on land once known as #2 Yard of what were once Idaho's Territorial Prison and later the first Idaho State Penitentiary. The mission of the Idaho Botanical Garden is to provide a full garden experience for all ages that enhances community quality of life through plant collections, our education programs, and our entertainment, cultural and community events.
