Biographical Info

Welcome to International Friendship Gardens, where forested woodlands, sprawling open spaces, and cultivated gardens spill over 100 acres of land that have been a tourist destination since 1936. Gardens are tucked throughout the beautiful valley of Trail Creek.

Visit Lake Lucerne, a spring fed lake and home to muskrats, geese and turtles. The woods are home to deer, raccoons, groundhogs, squirrels, foxes, coyotes and wild turkeys. The songs of birds are heard in the quiet of this valley surrounded by hills. The grounds are accessed by walking earthen trails and lawns.

Self- guiding garden tours and nature trails delight and inform visitors. Golf cart tours for those with mobility limitations are available by appointment. Dogs are welcome but must be leashed at all times.

International Friendship Gardens is one of the most beautiful settings in Northwest Indiana for Weddings and Special Events. We also host a variety of programs throughout the year.

We are open from Mother’s Day in May through the end of October on Wednesdays through Sundays from 10am-6pm CST. Admission is $6, Wednesdays are FREE suggested donation days. Children under 12 are FREE. Members have access to grounds year round from dawn to dusk. We are a Not-For-Profit Facility.
