Loretta Kupchick Woodland Wildflower Garden
Alpine Rock Garden
Lake Katherine offers unique public gardens: annual and perennial display gardens, natural and native areas, and demonstration gardens. The gardens inspire and delight visitors with quality plantings designed and maintained by Master Gardeners from the University of Illinois Extension, community volunteers and staff from Lake Katherine.
Volunteer gardeners are welcome! An active volunteer garden group helps maintain our gardens. If you would like to get involved, click here or contact Gareth at (708) 361-1873.
The gardens are planted throughout Lake Katherine for the enjoyment of our visitors. Select a garden from the list above to link to more detailed information.
