Directions & Hours

Your visit to Skagway, the Garden City of Alaska, is not complete without a visit to our tranquil gardens!

We are located just across the Skagway River Bridge – on the west side of the river, about a mile from downtown Skagway. Our address is Mile 1.5 Klondike Highway.

Our gardens open when the first cruise ship arrives in Skagway and we close for the season when the last cruise ship departs Skagway. This varies yearly but is typically the last week of April through the first week in October. The gardens are open 9-5 daily during those times. Poppies Restaurant is open 11 am to 4 pm daily.

Skagway’s city transit, the SMART Shuttle, offers transport to the gardens. Pick up locations are every other block in downtown Skagway on Broadway Street every 30 minutes. Buses leave downtown beginning at 9:00 am. The last bus leaves Jewell Gardens at 5:00 pm bound for downtown Skagway.


Getting to Skagway is easy – you can drive here from anywhere in North America. The Mile Post can help plan your excursion to Skagway.

Just a 35 minute trip from Haines on a high speed jet catamaran. Skagway-Haines Fast Ferry does multiple trips per day during the summer months. Check their schedule online.
