TaKE IN THE

FRESH AIR

After visiting our Abraham Lincoln historic sites and the
other great attractions Springfield has to offer, take a
break from the hustle and bustle and enjoy all the
wonderful green space in the city.
There are beautiful parks across the city, including
Lincoln Memorial Garden, a 100 acre preserve on the
shores of Lake Springfield, designed by famous
landscape architect Jens Jensen. The Garden
represents nature Lincoln would have seen during his
time in Kentucky, Indiana and Illinois, and visitors can
hike the six miles of trails throughout the preserve.
Visit springfieldparks.org to learn more about the pristine
places you can visit to enjoy a picnic lunch, play a round
of golf or horseshoes, listen to a carillon concert or visit
a botanical garden. Springfield is also a bike friendly
town with miles upon miles of bike trails to ride or walk.
