Beautiful arrangements. Great place for pictures & a stroll. Kids enjoyed the koi ponds & waterfall. When we visited, 7/1/2015, there were many ordinary flowers - but they manner in which they were arranged & mixed made them seem much more exotic.

Sunken Gardens is a favorite spot each year, after volunteers plant the year's theme. There is so much to do, from having a picnic to watching the koi, to viewing up at the dome. Be sure to go to the upper level to the shaded spot of greenery. Great place for a wedding or afternoon stroll.

Great place to wander. The flowers are lovely and vary throughout the year. There are also two coy ponds and a small waterfall.

This is one of the most peaceful spots in town. The flower arrangements are beautiful and diverse (be sure to grab a pamphlet if you're interested in that sort of thing), and the carved dome is fascinating. I've come here many times, with others or alone, to read a book beside the koi pond or just to walk the paths.... More

A million brides and grooms who come here for photos cannot be wrong! Avoid if you dislike flowers, especially water lillies.

Beautiful and excellently maintained garden. Walking paths are clean and some are engraved. Two fish 'ponds' with large Koi. Nice breath of nature in the city.

This is a classic Lincoln treasure. There is a pretty domed pavillion and so many flowers it is amazing. If you go on a weekend in the summer, this is for summer only, you might see a wedding.

I love the variety an lay out of the flora. The koi pond was very murky when I was there, but I like the lily pads on it.
