  • Great location to take senior pics!! Beautiful garden along the river with great views. Free. Stroll along Riverside Park after visiting the beautiful garden.  more »
  • This stop on a weekend trip was better than expected. You can grab a little map in the visitor center near the entrance which will tell you which country inspired garden you are in as you stroll...  more »

  • Found it totally by chance walking from the Lacrosse Queen boat launch. The entrance caught my eye and went in to see what it was all about. Truly a great find! Very relaxing stroll among national theme garden beds planted with flowers, scrubs and water attractions. Had my 2 year old granddaughter and she loved the goldfish pool! Great idea and location! Not for profit means I hope people find it and appreciate it!
  • Cute little park, very interesting little scenery. Had different sections from all over the world and an awesome view of the Mississippi river. Nice for a free thing to do
