Friendship Botanic Gardens

Regular price $23.00

Friendship Botanic Gardens is a 105-acre nature preserve at the eastern edge of Michigan City, Indiana, just a mile from the beautiful beaches of Lake Michigan. Its intriguing history dates back 80 years to the time it was founded as International Friendship Gardens and Music Festivals. Some of its ethnic gardens are still in existence, plus towering trees planted by the original developers, spectacular displays of roses and lilies, notable sculpture, a newly established children's garden, and a Symphony Garden that features musical events ranging from light opera to pop rock. The gardens are open to the public during the blooming season (May through October) and for special seasonal events such as maple syrup tree-tapping (in February) and a Thanksgiving Day walk.
