the two locomotives on the hill make this garden for someone that isn't completely enamored with gardens. The train display is high on the hill and has an excellent view of the river and the Iowa side. The engines are amazing and definitely a part...More

We went at Christmas time so our son could see Santa Clause. The plants are gorgeous, but we would like to go back while it's nice outside to see the outdoor gardens.

There are acres and acres of beautiful flowers. Just follow the trails and it takes you from one floral spot of beauty to another. The gift shop is pretty expensive, but this garden is a great addition to other activites in Omaha.
