Sunken Gardens, Lincoln, Nebraska
This small garden covers just over 1 acre and is located right in the middle of town on the corner of a busy intersection. The garden was developed in the early 1930s on an abandoned dump site. A depression-era project, it provided work for unemployed men. The total cost of the garden at the time was $2,500. In 2003, the Lincoln Parks Foundation donated 1.7 million to renovate the gardens.
|This is an annual garden, filled with thousands of plants.|
|Just across the street was a very nice city perennial garden and rose garden.|
