La Crosse enjoys thriving relationships with sister cities, business partners, students and people from around the world. To celebrate the success of these partnerships, and build a tribute to the culture and traditions of our worldwide friends, local volunteers have worked togther to create the Riverside International Gardens in Riverside Park.
The first gardens planted will represent the style of a typical garden in each sister city. They are: Epinal France, Luoyang China, Friedberg Germany and Dubna Russia.
The Riverside International Friendship Gardens will be a place of beauty reflecting our appreciation for the diverse cultures that share the earth.
