“See what Lincoln saw”
The Garden represents the landscape Abraham Lincoln would have known growing up and living in the Midwest, containing plants native to the three states he lived in - Kentucky, Indiana and Illinois. Designed by internationally-known landscape architect Jens Jensen, this 100-acre site features six miles of trails, footbridges, a pond, eight stone council rings, and dozens of wooden benches inscribed with Lincoln quotes. The woodland and prairie garden beckons to thousands of visitors year round - families, birdwatchers, photographers, artists, nature enthusiasts, and school children - to learn about nature and enjoy the wildflowers, trees and wildlife.
It's not really a garden so much as a large wooded area with nice walking trails. It has a lot of prairie and other native plants as well as trees. It's right next to a lake, so it has pretty nice views as well.
I expected a few flower plots and a gazebo, but this place is SO much more than that! It has really neat walk way bridges and benches for visitors to enjoy. If you get there right at sundown, there is a opportunity to see an awesome sunset!
