How to enjoy and visit Quilt Gardens safely

The Quilt Gardens along the Heritage Trail are an ideal way to enjoy  a visit to Elkhart County while also maintaining safe physical distance from others and complying with health and safety recommendations from public health officials. 

Each Quilt Gardens site is located in a spacious public area with ample room to move about and maintain physical distance from other visitors. There are few, if any, touch points at Quilt Gardens sites, and we encourage all visitors to wear masks if physically possible. The Quilt Gardens are open at all times and free... so enjoy one site or all 16 at your own pace.

In most instances, the Quilt Gardens can be enjoyed and viewed from one’s car.
