Gardens with a bit of history.

Beautiful gardens (looks like some cleanup could be used - some down tree limbs, etc) and some neat information about the Fords. It was cold and rainy today while we were there... read more

This is just a garden on the site where the house used to stand. We visited because of personal connections.

We expected a house but this is apparently long gone. Nice little garden, worth a visit when the flowers are in bloom but I wouldn't go out of my way to visit.

There was very little to see. Only a small kiosk with some timeline narrative about the life of President Ford. No access to the building on the grounds and NO FACILITIES!

Beautiful gardens (looks like some cleanup could be used - some down tree limbs, etc) and some neat information about the Fords. It was cold and rainy today while we were there, so though we didn't linger, we were able to take it all in, in a short amount of time - had the weather been better, we definitely would... More

Located in a quiet and historical section of the city, this park definitely gives one time to rest and reflect. It tells the story of President Ford in a way that everyone can understand. Two notes of caution one, there is no parking lot, you park on the street two, the indoor exhibits are not open on the week end.

This is a lovely spot once you find it. There is no parking lot, just park on the street. It is in a nice neighborhood and blends in as a public green space at first. There is a kiosk that gives a summary of Ford's life in Nebraska (all 16 days of it) and the accomplishments of his life. It... More

Infact there were no people giving birth there. No videos of births. One lady looked really really pregnant, but after only 15 minutes of intently watching her I was asked to leave. Took a little learning to figure out it wasn't that kind of birth place. Supposedly a president grew up on this location. A bit disappointed but knowledge was... More

This is a really neat place to visit. Walk around and read all the interesting facts about Ford. The flowers still needed to be planted but it looks really nice
