We visit the Sunken Gardens whenever we're in or passing through Lincoln, NE. The garden is different every year. The waterfall and pools filled with koi and lily pads are gorgeous. This year in mid June, the lily pads were in bloom with brilliant pink, yellow, and white flowers. It's also small in size, so one doesn't need much time... More

Sunken gardens is a wonderful floral display area. It changes through the year going through various phase. Many people don't know that it is built on the site of a former landfill. The flowers the steps, the poo completely complement each other. Well worth the trip.

Walked through the gardens while we were in town for a university visit. They were so pretty! A large variety of flowers, ponds, fountains and a waterfall, and paths. Plenty of places to sit and take it all in. I've been to Lincoln many times and have never seen this before, glad I saw it on TA! It was neat... More

This is one those hidden treasures that one finds. It is situated in the middle of a city, with buildings rising above it and traffic whizzing all around. It is simply gorgeous! We looked at it for a possible venue for my daughter's wedding, but decided not to have the wedding there. Certainly that decision was not a reflection on... More

Seriously, go there. That's all I can say. A bit of serenity and uncommon, historical beauty where you would not expect to find it!

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. We couldn't stop taking pictures, and... More

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.
