The  Friendship Botanic Gardens is 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.
Friendship Botanic Gardens is a 106 acre botanical sanctuary that enriches the community through programs that promote environmental stewardship and appreciation of the arts. Their natural and cultivated spaces are the perfect settings for unique experiences that forge lifelong connections between people and nature.
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.
