River Walk & International Gardens Tour | Riverside Park
Enjoy the beauty of the Riverside International Friendship Gardens. This collection of public gardens celebrates La Crosse’s sister-city relationships with communities in China, Germany, France, Russia, Norway and Ireland. Located next to the La Crosse Convention and Visitors Bureau at Riverside Park, it’s a short walk from the La Crosse Center through Riverside Park.
In celebration of 100 years of Rotary in our region, area Rotary clubs are partnering with the International Friendship Gardens, the La Crosse Friends of Cameroon, the City of La Crosse, and others to develop a garden in honor of the Sister City relationship between La Crosse and Kumbo, Cameroon. The effort is called “Growing Hearts across the World.”  Nearing completion, the garden is located adjacent to the International Friendship Gardens.

Scavenger hunt maps of the Riverside International Friendship Garden can be downloaded and printed. They are popular with children. All items can be seen from garden pathways. We ask all visitors to stay on paths. Have fun!
