This is a small beautifully designed public garden with terraces, masses of annual flowers, statuary and fountains. We stopped by on a cross-country trip after finding it online. It was surprising to find that it is free admission. The garden is small (you can easily tour it in a half-hour or so. Bring your camera! Be sure to cross the... More

Ample parking, restrooms, and beautiful flowers and ponds. Definitely worth the visit. If you have time, it's a great place to relax on a bench and read a book.

When I need to get away and clear my head this is where I love to go. By the time I leave I am relaxed and refreshed.

This is a beautiful, relaxing place you must visit. The flowers are beautiful and tended with great care. There are ponds, art work, and a water fountain. If you are lucky, you will encounter an outdoor wedding. Just across the street is a lovely rose garden with more fountains. The Children's Zoo is close by. On our travels, we have... More

This free garden is just a delight. It is unique looking with some huge leaf plants. Such a wonderful trip through the many different types of plants.

We were very surprised to find this oasis in Lincoln. The gardens are simply outstanding. The care and attention to detail is meticulous and the planting very well considered. The ponds are well stocked with fish and beautifully coloured lilies and lotus flowers. It's not a huge garden but a very nice way to spend an hour or so and... More

This is truly a treat for the eyes. The plantings change with the blooming seasons and it is immaculately groomed and cared for by local volunteers. It is not large in comparison to many others we have visited, but the variety and quantity of plantings is amazing. The Tai Giant Elephant Ears were humongous. There is no admission, and we... More

Enjoy this beautiful, well maintained garden, whether you have just a few minutes or extra time on your hands. Much was in bloom in early September and for viewers with botanical interests, there is a list of plants available. Friendly workers (volunteers?) were on site and were helpful answering a few questions. Free parking was plentiful on the nearby streets.
