The Gardens are open from May through the end of October on Wednesdays through Sundays from 10am-6pm CST. Admission is $8. Children under 12 are FREE. Members have access to grounds year round from dawn to dusk. We are a Not-For-Profit Facility.

The Friendship Botanic Gardens (a volunteer-based, not-for-profit organization) is community treasure, and an oasis of formal gardens and nature trails tucked in an old-growth forest surrounding Trail Creek in Michigan City, Indiana. We are kicking off a new, fresh season and we are excited to introduce a new a slate of events and activities in 2017: new gardens, music concerts, educational programs and health and harmony with nature.
  The Friendship Botanic Gardens is a place 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.
