  • Still one of my favorite running parks. They have a paved trail that totals about 3.5 miles if you go around the entire lake. However, the trail does not extend the entire way around and you will be f...  more »

  • The lake is very nice and serene. The cell reception is god awful, but most people aren't going there to use their phones. Also there are a lot of pokemon from Pokemon GO there. So if you're there for normal lake things, realize that people will be driving through very slowly for pokemon. Just go around them.
  • Nice lake beautiful scenery, trail goes almost around the lake, it stops at 144 street, you can use the roadway to get to the other side of the lake, or you can turn around. Great food running, walking, riding bikes. You can fish, playground area, don't know about water running bathrooms, does have couple outhouses around the lake, but not many.
  • Great place for a stroll and fishing. Beautiful surroundings. Convenient parking
  • This place is a really nice trail to walk around while you just you want to get out of the house. Everytime I go there, its always clean and different places to explore. It is a bit busy during really nice days. The lake is really nice and doesnt smell and looks pretty clean. However in the summer time because it is a lake, mosquitos! So make sure to bring bug spray if you don't want to be bit!
  • A nice city park with a generally underused lake. Occasionally good fishing from the banks, better from a boat! Great trail around the lake for walking or running and, generally, a safe area to explore around. Never croweded!

Where to stay in Omaha

Not surprisingly for a city of its size, Omaha has a diverse range of accommodation options to suit a variety of tastes and budgets. A hotel close to downtown is usually more expensive, but enables guests to experience the best of Omaha's nightlife, shopping, and dining on foot. An apartment rental in one of the city's vibrant residential neighborhoods might be a good choice if you are planning a longer stay in the city. You'll find national chain hotels and motels in many of Omaha's suburbs.
