This is a well kept area that has beautiful flowers, and then has butterflies, Koi ponds and small water falls. Great place to go and unwind, let the kids roam, or to photograph.

First rate attraction of beautiful plants, flowers and trees. Definitely a place to see and bring friends and family to. Designed very wonderfully and easy to walk around and see. Parking is handy.

The gardens are absolutely beautiful and a wonderful oasis in the middle of the city! One of our favorite places to go when we are in Lincoln.

An easy stop with parking just west of south 27th st. Always beautiful during the spring to fall seasons. Kudos to staff and Volunteers who do a wonderful job caring for this gem in the city

These gardens were just gorgeous in October. I can only imagine what they are like in the summer. We said we would visit weekly if we lived in Lincoln.
