|Nebraska's Centennial Mall is located along the North axis of the State Capitol Building, extending 7 blocks in downtown Lincoln|
Revitalizing Nebraska's Centennial Mall
Nebraska's Centennial Mall was dedicated in 1968 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of our statehood. During the intervening 40 years, the infrastructure and landscape plantings have become aged to the point of deteriorating and are beyond practical repair. The current functional needs of downtown Lincoln, accessibility issues to ensure all citizens can safely enjoy the Mall, and the necessity for a sustainable landscape dictate a comprehensive redesign and redevelopment.
The Lincoln Parks Foundation is leading a statewide $9.6 million capital campaign to fund the renovation of this historic space.
|Historic Sherman Field is located at 2nd & South Streets|
Sherman Field Forever
From 1947 to 1961, Sherman Field was home to a Minor League Baseball team. Players including Satchel Paige, Nellie Fox and Bobby Shantz graced this field before moving to the Major Leagues. Since 1961, Sherman Field has been home to American Legion and High School baseball. Over 6,000 boys of summer have learned to win and lose on these historic grounds. One of the best Husker Baseball teams ever included players who grew up in part on Sherman Field -- Joba Chamberlain, Alex Gordon, Jeff Christy and Andy Gerch.
|Union Plaza is located North of 'O' Street between 21st & 22nd Streets|
Union Plaza is Lincoln's newest destination park--a six-acre urban park. Dedicated in 2012, Union Plaza will become a "must-see" for residents and visitors alike. The park is named in honor of our lead donor Union Bank & Trust and is full of unique educational offerings, public art, fountains, sustainable plantings, and more surprises!
The Lincoln Parks Foundation was proud to lead a $4.75 million capital campaign to build the park and care for it forever with an endowment.
