“Real Nice Place to Go Back To Nature”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

This is a great location to spend some peaceful time walking around or just sitting among all of the different trees and plants etc. You can see that a lot of work went into establishing the Garden and a lot of work is done to maintain it nicely.

“Impressive structure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We really liked our visit to the memorial site. The guide there told us a lot about the building of the memorial. It had to be rebuilt twice because the ground is spongy there.There are representations of the four types of military that Lincoln commanded.

“Beautiful Nature Preserve”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

We walked through this recreation of forest land which has trees and plants from Illinois, Indiana and Kentucky; these were the three states Lincoln lived in as a youth. The forest showed signs of early autumn when we visited; adjacent to a scenic lake and plenty of wildlife to view.

“Beautiful and serene”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

The gardens are a tree park. It features a lot of trails that go all over. Very nice place to take a quiet walk, to go for a jog or to view leaves for school. In February they tap the maples and demonstrate how they get the syrup. Its on the lake so you get water views, creeks, as well as a few small bridges.
