Interesting park by UNL campus where you can get lost in a garden with pretty architecture for a while.

A pleasant and unexpected green-space close to downtown Lincoln. A pergola is nestled in the corner with a lovely fountain in the center of the park. There are also swings and a safe play area. All of this surrounded by a hedge and colorful plantings.

We reserved this park for our wedding (many years ago). Parks and rec were wonderful when we had an unexpected May snow storm! We had to use our alternate space and were refunded our deposit. It is a small park with room for an intimate setting. Parking on the side streets. Love the gazebo!

The most beautiful gazebo for an outdoor wedding. The bridal party were barefoot - the grass was sooooo soft! Beautiful floral backdrop for pictures The quietness of the area made it so easy to hear the vows. Easy parking, easy to location to find if you are visiting from out of town.

Friends of ours were married here last summer. It was like being in a place that was just ours. It was like being in your own bubble. Intimate, and a great place for pictures! Would bring kids here for fun on the playground, picnics, reading.

I have attended small weddings in this little venue and they were both so intimate because you so close to the wedding party. I loved it!

This is a small playground for toddler aged children. Not much there for older kids but it does have a fountain and a little gazebo that are nice to sit by and read. City fixed the park up several years ago and it is a great spot to relax in.

Terrific location for photography sessions and for n outdoor wedding! It's like walking into an enchanted garden that transports you back in time to the early 1900s. Have a lunch-sack date there with your girlfriend or wife and watch her swoon!
