LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) While you're attending Riverfest there's another destination at the north end of Riverside Park you may want to explore.
It's the Riverside International Friendship Gardens.
Five gardens reflecting five of the six La Crosse sister cities. Not too long from now, work will begin on that sixth garden.
You will enjoy the beauty of the property as soon as you walk in. But, along with the many volunteers who make the gardens possible, founder Chuck Hanson hopes you'll walk away with more than that.
You can learn a bit more about the gardens by watching the attached video from News 19 photographer Mark Bronson and reporter Dave Solie.
