Scenes from Omaha

A portion of Lauritzen Gardens in Omaha is named for the Union Pacific Chairman and CEO John c. Kenefick. The area is beautifully landscaped.. There is no charge to visit this incredible display.

Kenefick Park is home to Centennial No. 6900 and Big Boy No. 4023. Largest, most powerful diesel-electric and steam engines ever built.

The Lauritzen Gardens landscape is dotted with significant art pieces.
Everywhere you walk you will wonder if you are in an outdoor art museum.

 This bronze is in the Founder's Garden, a shade garden filled with 50 varieties of hostas and ferns.
