  • The membership is worth it! No better place to take a stroll and get your steps in, even when it's snowy out. Did I mention Grooving in the Garden ? Look it up!
  • The Christmas light special they had was amazing. And their goals and purpose is very respectful and honorable
  • Went here during winter for the lights with my girlfriend. Beautiful.
  • I only go when it's free, it's not the sort of place I'd expect to pay admission to. But, they are doing some nice work on it. There are some interesting side gardens going up and little water features.
  • Beautiful gardens tucked away near downtown Elkhart. Special events are very well done.
