I would highly recommend Sunken Gardens. It is very well maintained and absolutely beautiful! I took my grandchildren and they especially enjoyed the fish ponds.

We were in town for our granddaughter's birthday the day before and I had read the reviews here... and I was hooked. It did not disappoint. The gardens are laid out so beautifully, and (from what the locals we encountered who go frequently) this year is particularly good. The flowers were blooming in force.

Beautiful!! Great gardens, along the sanctioned AVA Capital Walk in Lincoln. Lovingly maintained by local volunteers, who were out tending the day we walked.

The Sunken Gardens were truly magnificent. They are simply breathtaking and a wonder. This would be a wonderful place to have portraits taken.

We have had enough rain to make the flowers in full bloom and extra full. Every color is represented mixed with sculptures and water features! Grab a drink and bring your camera as everyone there felt inspired to capture the moment

What a great place to just sit and enjoy the beauty, right in the middle of our Capitol City. And the best part, there is no cost, and no large crowds to get around. The city of Lincoln should be proud of all it's volunteers who make this possible.

The garden is bigger than it looks and over an hour can be spent just walking, taking in the beauty, and admiring all the variety of plants. Highly recommend.

I love the Sunken Gardens - it is a peaceful place to walk around or just sit and think. It's also a great place to take pictures - of people or of the many beautiful flowers and plants.
