  • Great flowers and plants however older lady at the desk is rude and believes herself better than most. Garden is great though just avoid the staff
  • Unfinished and they charge 5 bucks a person admission fee. The finished parts are beautiful however.
  • Lovely, unique walk through the gardens. A gem for the city of Elkhart.
  • An incredible experience, and worth a drive to Elkhart even if you have nothing else to do here.
  • Beautiful place, especially in the spring and fall. Many different plant and flowers that are well gardened by the staff. Very relaxing and peaceful.
