Wellfield Botanic Gardens: A Weekend Worth the Trip
Experience Wellfield Botanic Gardens in its fall glory at the north end of the Gateway Mile in Elkhart.
Every season has its own beauty in the gardens, and fall is no exception. The water features in the gardens reflect the colors of the changing leaves, making a spectacular prism of color.
After strolling around the Wellfield Botanic Gardens, there is so much more to see in the Gateway Mile. Continue your stroll on the Riverwalk, or visit the Ruthmere Mansion, the Lerner Theatre, or local museums.
