Open on Sundays
The crystalline waters from Christiana Creek once powered the city's 19th century mill. Today, they stream through and inspire 36 acres of lush gardens set against a backdrop of native woodlands. Striking in any season, and just minutes from Elkhart's Riverwalk and restaurants, Wellfield leads visitors along winding stone paths dotted with charming pump houses and whimsical sculptures. Vantage points from walkways and bridges offer panoramic views; shaded benches invite quite reflection. This beautiful attraction offers all ages a unique opportunity for education, inspiration and the pure enjoyment of nature and art combined.
