Every year, they introduced a new a slate of events and activities: 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.
