Friendship Gardens is a 105 acre botanical sanctuary that enriches the community through programs that promote environmental stewardship and appreciation of the arts. Our natural and cultivated spaces are the perfect settings for unique experiences that forge lifelong connections between people and nature.
We are raising funds toward the continued revitalization of Friendship Botanic Gardens into an enriching community destination point for La Porte County.
Friendship Botanic Gardens serves as a venue for a variety of public programs and events including free environmental education adventures like the annual Butterfly Bonanza and the Botanic Bug Safari. The grounds of FBG also play host to momentous cultural events like the annual Lyric Opera of Chicago Season preview and the Bacchus and Beer Fest. The sprawling FBG landscape sits at the nexus of a variety of natural habitats intersecting lovingly cultivated formal garden areas, offering visitors endless opportunities to explore and recharge among acres and acres of natural splendor.
