04.22.2011 / Celebrate National Public Gardens Day with Lauritzen Gardens

Did you know that May 6th is National Public Gardens Day? It is! National Public Gardens Day was founded by the American Public Gardens Association. It was designed to raise awareness of Americas public gardens.

"Lauritzen Gardens is celebrating with free admission to all visitors on May 6th."

On May 6th, visitors to public gardens will learn about the role of public gardens in their communities. In addition, the day is seen as the “unofficial” start to the gardening season. Over 500 member gardens participate each year, and this year, Lauritzen Gardens is celebrating with free admission to all visitors on May 6th.

In addition to learning about the role that Lauritzen Garden’s play in the Omaha community, visitors on May 6th will see a wide variety of Garden attractions including the Indoor Spring Flower Show (one of the last chances to see the show, which closes on May 8th!) and Outside Kaneko. Outside Kaneko includes over 50 sculptures and drawings flanked by lush greenery and colorful flowers covering the 100-acre botanical garden, located in the beautiful riverfront hills.
