We have driven by so many times and so happy we took the time to stop this year on our visit to Lincoln! 😀 Our pictures turned out great and easy for my husband to get around the gardens although he can't walk very far.

Unusual flower garden with pools, statues and a rock waterfall. It is a two level area of flowers and walk ways.

Lots of flowers and other plants here. Tiered flower beds going down to ponds filled with lily pads is very nice. Some fish in the water as well.

One of my favorite places to go in Lincoln to just sit, relax, and take in life. Sit and read a book, watch a wedding, smell all the flowers, watch the fish swim, or just people watch.

This is an amazing place to do nothing and still be involved with the amazing array of flowers and plants. If you’ve had a busy day of working, sight-seeing or trying to keep up with active grandkids, there is no better location to get rejuvenated....More

The end of May is just fine. The gardens are planted so that there are different plants blooming all season. It's really lovely at night too.
