The GCU Botanic Garden is being managed by the Department
since 1912. It covers an area of seven acres. Since its establishment,
the Botanic Garden has been appropriately looked after and well kept. It
includes a number of wild flora as well as exotic and rare species.
Presently, the Botanic Garden is home to 700 species. Dr. A. U. Khan has
made a noteworthy contribution to the Department by publishing an index
of the plant species present in the Garden entitled "Catalogue of Plants
GC University Lahore Botanic Garden" (1996). Another concise
booklet entitled "A Brief Guide to Government College Lahore Botanic
Garden" (2007) provides a historical overview of the Garden.
Pakistan Botanic Gardens Network Secretariat (PBGN) has
published a report covering Jan 2007-Dec 2008. Please
