We took about 3 hrs to view this park and it was definitely worth it. The garden itself was nicely laid out while one shouldnt miss the 2 Locomotives at the top of the hill. A nice green getaway within the city limits.

This is a great spot, not far from the city center of Omaha. Many birds and diversified gardens. It is worth staying there for several hours to enjoy the place.

I love stopping by here each time I visit Omaha. Go early in the morning when it's still relatively cool - it can get pretty steamy in the summer months. The gardens slowly unfold and reveal hidden surprises as you walk down the paved path...More

Very peaceful and lovely gardens right off the highway. Right now there are very cool sculptures around the garden that are worth seeing. Some of the areas are not very shaded so if you are sensitive to the sun, bring an umbrella and some water!
