The Gardens at Yanney Park is now open for you to explore! Phase 1 of this fantastic new addition has been newly completed adding winding trails, Pollinator, Liliac, Hydrangea, and Native Nebraska Gardens, as well as multiple public art installations. This project is set to have 3 phases, adding more amazingness to this already fabulous park!!
Phase II will add four remaining gardens: Annuals, Rose, Xeriscape and Edibles, along with the Center Courtyard and a reflecting pond. The second phase is anticipated to be completed by October 2022, depending on fundraising.
Phase III will complete the project with a pavilion, gazebo, trailhead and parking lot. The third phase will start when funds are in place, and can begin before or concurrent with Phase II. The Yanney Park Heritage Park Foundation‘s goal is to have it completed by 2023.
Thanks to Yanney Heritage Park Foundation, City of Kearney, Kearney Park & Recreation, Steinbrink Landscaping & Greenhouses, and many donors for making this project possible! We look forward to watching The Gardens bloom and grow! It is something our community and visitors will enjoy for many years to come!
