LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) -

During this week’s Eye Piece, News 8 Photographer John Schmidt visits the peaceful Riverside International Friendship Gardens in La Crosse, which was able to withstand recent severe storms.

The Gardens are a partnership among the City of La Crosse Parks Department, the Bluff Country Master Gardeners, and the Riverside International Friendship Gardens Board of Directors.
