About Wellfield Botanic Gardens

The Wellfield Botanic Gardens are in Elkhart, Indiana’s Garden District. This area is known as the northern gateway to Elkhart and features grand, historic homes, tree-lined streets, and lovely gardens. The “icing on the cake” is Wellfield Botanic Gardens, where a neighborhood walk includes the perfect combination of beauty and nature.

The gardens were created in 1977, with the help of landscape architect Mervin E. Butts, who also designed New York’s Central Park and Chicago’s Lincoln Park. In 2010, an additional 16 acres were added to the Wellfield Botanic Gardens, thanks to a generous donation from the Robert C. and Patricia A. Stempel Foundation.

Today, the gardens are home to more than 30 different gardens and features, including a children’s garden, a rose garden, an herb garden, a conifer collection, and more. The Wellfield Botanic Gardens are open daily from dawn until dusk and admission is free.
