  • Enjoyed visiting the botanical gardens during our stay in Omaha. Opted to go at night during the holidays to catch the lights and everything was beautiful. It was a little smaller than I expected...

  • Always a great place to visit for a few hours. Beautiful walking trails with different gardens. The gift shop is so much fun. They have activities going on all of the time, so check their website...

  • Me and my family just had an outing at Lawrence and gardens. It's nice that the library has a partnership with them so you can get in free with the library card print the ticket from the website on the library. They have beautiful flowers blooming right now. I love seeing all the different colored flowers and we took the tram which is nice it shows you a lot of the grounds we normally can't walk that far to see. It's nice they have a tram five bucks a person. It's also nice that they have benches everywhere inside and outside to sit on. They have a lot of beautiful blown glass pieces like glass flowers. We can avoid that another sculptures that are all through the gardens.
  • Absolutely superb botanical gardens. Very large and diverse park with plenty of shaded areas and well kept paths. The whole park is quiet the walk but they do offer a tram experience so you if walking is difficult you can still experience all the park had to offer. Also has a super neat model train exhibit that is a must see especially if you have kids. Really cool place.
