Kalispell, Montana

Bibler Gardens

On a hillside west of Kalispell, overlooking the Flathead Valley and the Swan Mountains to the east, with views of several peaks in Glacier National Park is Bibler Gardens. The main portion of the garden consists of four acres of beautifully landscaped beds and water features. Originally owned and designed by Louis A. “Sam” Bibler from around 1980 until his death in 2002, Bibler is a private diaplay garden. The extensive gardens, including ponds, waterfalls, sculptures, arboretum, and a log stable with a menagerie of miniature animals, are maintained today according to Sam’s desire to preserve the site as a place of lasting beauty that could be enjoyed by the Kalispell community and visitors to the area. Public tours of the home and gardens are conducted twice annually. Scheduled tours via special arrangements. For more information, please call Rande at (406) 755-6578. [ info ]
