Friendship Botanic Gardens

Tucked in the valley of Trail Creek is truly a secret garden. It’s an intriguing and unexpected blend of formal gardens, statues from days gone by, and serene natural areas. Visit Lake Lucerne to see muskrats, geese, turtles, and waterfowl, or explore the Path of Nations’ international-themed cultivated gardens. Guests with limited mobility may experience the grounds via golf cart tours scheduled in advance.
