This is a treasure; something to be cherished for decades to come. Take time to stroll the gardens and schedule a return visit to enjoy live music during the summer Groovin' In The Gardens series every Thursday night at 7pm.

2017 was the first year for the Christmas walks. Cookies and hot coffee and cocoa were great. This will only get better each year!

The only times the kids took their phones out was to take photos. Beautiful landscaping and artistic features. One of Michiana's gems. This place is bigger than just the City of Elkhart.

This is so well cared for. The plant selection was really good and the waterfalls are so peaceful and calm to sit and look at. The chimes are like none I have seen anywhere.
