The goal was to provide more access to people that require mobility assistance, such as wheelchairs and walkers. The natural green space has become a major resource for La Porte County residents to utilize for the benefit of their mental and physical health and wellness; however, gravel trails have provided difficulty for some guests to experience the natural beauty. The two main paved trails wind through all of the cultivated gardens and major attractions on the grounds. There are still multiple wilderness trails that remain earthen. There are plans in the future to provide paved access in other areas of the Gardens.

The Healthcare Foundation of La Porte has also provided funding in previous years for two phases of fitness equipment that now are known as the HFL Fitness Garden. “We are very appreciative and extremely grateful for the support that we have received from the Healthcare Foundation of La Porte,” said John Leinweber, President of the Board of Directors at Friendship Botanic Gardens. “They have contributed to so many meaningful projects in La Porte County and we are lucky to be considered as a partner in providing more resources for health and wellness in La Porte County.”
