Free admission. Always beautiful in the summer. So many different varieties of butterflies and dragonflies. We love going and looking at all the variety of flowers. Great place for family pictures, weddings, senior photos. If you go on the weekend, don't be surprised if you run into a wedding party. Definitely my favorite garden in Lincoln.
What an amazing public park! This is an expansive public space with lush gardens, statuary and water features. I can’t believe it’s free to get in. Parking is very limited so you may have to do off street parking. Continue across the street to stroll through the rose garden and see the fountain. The day I was there a vendor was open selling drinks and snacks.
