True to its name, Taman Herba Negeri Perak has many herbal gardens. The herbs are clustered according to their properties. There is a total of 8 herbal gardens here, in addition to a herb nursery. Three of these gardens are for heritage herbs, two are for herbs with medicinal properties, one for aromatic herbs, one for herbs with cosmetic properties, and one for herbs used in ulam or salads.

In addition to the herbal gardens, Taman Herba Perak has public facilities. This includes a car park, a guard house, a cafeteria, washroom, campsite, field, and even a bridal area.

Taman Herba Negeri Perak was established in 2002. It was the brainchild of then Menteri Besar, Datuk Seri Mohd Tajol Rosli Ghazali. It was officiated by then Sultan of Perak, Sultan Azlan Shah on 18 June, 2009.
