Attraction details
Owner description: A native woodland garden designed by Jens Jensen located on the south side of Lake Springfield. This 100 acre site has 6 miles of wood-chipped hiking trails as well as a wonderful nature center.

This wooded area is on the shore of lake Springfield. Some of the trails go along the shore. Most wind through the woods. Low difficulty trails of varying lengths. No significant hills. Small nature center that does have indoor restrooms. Many special events on-site through the year.

We started our two day vacation in Springfield with a walk through the Memorial Garden. After a five hour drive it felt good to stretch our legs. Reading the Lincoln quotes on all the benches was a good introduction to our Lincoln tour. It's a beautiful spot and well maintained.

Nice little drive around SPRINGFIELD LAKE to get to the garden. There's a ton of trails that go along the lake. All kinds of wildflowers. Hike and enjoy nature. There's a gift shop too.
