Lauritzen Gardens is uniquely positioned as the region’s premier botanical center and garden resource. Centrally located in the heart of the United States and situated on 100 acres of lush grounds, the garden exemplifies visionary efforts to provide a quiet, tranquil and serene setting for the study, preservation, and pure enjoyment of some of the region’s most precious resources and flora. Beginning with a grassroots effort to build a garden for the Omaha community, the garden has quickly become a regional destination and has substantiated its position as a major Omaha-area attraction.
Today, more than twenty themed gardens and the Marjorie K. Daugherty Conservatory invite guests to immerse themselves in the beauty of the Nebraska landscape and in a lush environment where plants burst with life year-round. At Lauritzen Gardens, a diverse palette of plant life combines with fine art, architectural components and water features to create an incredible sensory experience. The grounds change with the seasons and are open year-round for exploration and enjoyment.
