Wellfield Botanic Gardens in Elkhart
The gardens were lovely. We walked through natural sections of weeds and wildflowers, next to Christiana Creek with its rapids and water lilies, and then through a more formal landscaped section. There were vertical gardens and sensory gardens and sculpture gardens. All of this is on a well field where the water for the city of Elkhart comes from aquafers 70 feet below ground. The huge water storage tanks are right next door.
I don't think this will be a once in a lifetime experience. It's close enough and lovely enough to visit often.
