Bibler Gardens


Bibler Gardens is located in Kalispell, Montana. It is in my opinion, one of the prettiest gardens in the state. The property overlooks Flathead Valley, the Swan Mountains and parts of Glacier Park.

The gardens were designed by Louis "Sam" Bibler at his home from 1979 - 2002. They are really a labor of love.

Public tours are held twice a year:  In the Spring when daffodils and tulips are at their peak, and in the summer, when the flowers are in full bloom.

The gardens include waterfalls, bridges, sculptures, fountains, and a gazebo. There are also beautiful Argentinian black-necked swans that roam the place.  


Admission is $15 for adults and $5.00 for children.



For those of you who don't follow my other blog, I posted a video from my recent viola recital. Here it is if you'd like to listen to me play:

  1. Is this a private garden in someone's home? It definitely looks good! The recital was lovely, thanks for posting it.

    1. Not anymore. Bibler died in 2002. I believe the garden is owned by the city. I'll have to look that up.

  4. Bibler Gardens looks like my kind of place. I would never want to leave there. The closest we have to something like it here is a place called Trinity Heights.
