Arbor Lake

Arbor Lake 1Arbor Lake 2

A saline wetland just north of Lincoln and Interstate 80 along 27th street was acquired by the City of Lincoln as mitigation for the destruction of a smaller saline wetland filled when Capitol Parkway West bypass was constructed southwest of downtown Lincoln. Arbor Lake has public access, a parking area and benches to allow visitors to observe saline wetlands and the plant and animal life in the area.

In 2004, the City of Lincoln purchased an additional 69 acres of property to the east and south of the original Arbor Lake property. This purchase includes saline flats and buffer areas needed to protect these fragile natural areas. In total, Arbor Lake is now 132 acres in size.
