What are Friendship Gardens?

La Crosse enjoys thriving relationships with sister cities, business partners, students and people from around the world. To celebrate the success of these partnerships, and build a tribute to the culture and traditions of our worldwide friends, a 3-way partnership including the city of La Crosse, the Bluff Country Master Gardeners, and Riverside International Friendship Gardens Board of Directors, has worked together to create the Riverside International Friendship Gardens in Riverside Park along the banks of the beautiful Mississippi River.
