Ay their web page says that the garden is redisgned for every station of the year, but we found nothing and a little snow. It is not really something to visit every time of the year.

Wonderful variety of beautiful flowers. Every year volunteers help plant the annual flowers. Many couples get married here because of the nice setting.

Lincoln's Sunken Gardens are always worth a visit. Lovely gardens, water features, and surprising tranquility for a location on major streets. It's different every year, and different from summer into fall, so it's worth repeat visits. Occasionally a friend and I will pick up lunch...More

The end of May is just fine. The gardens are planted so that there are different plants blooming all season. It's really lovely at night too.
