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. The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission manages Arbor Lake for the city. It has public access, a parking area, and an observation platform to allow visitors to observe saline wetlands plant and animal life.

Recently, 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. In November of 2007, the City was awarded $250,000, for the Arbor Lake Wetland Restoration Project. The restoration was initiated in 2008 with the development of a wetland restoration conceptual design being developed. It is anticipated that construction work will begin in 2010.
