The Incredibly Unique Park That’s Right Here In Nebraska’s Own Backyard

We talk a lot about Nebraska’s incredible state parks, but some of our city and town parks are just as impressive. One in particular is exceptionally diverse and beautiful, and it’s located in a place you’d never expect to find it.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

You can find Pioneers Park at South Coddington and West Van Dorn Streets in Lincoln. It’s open 362 days a year; summer hours are Monday through Saturday from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm and Sundays from noon to 5 pm. Admission is free, but donations are gratefully accepted.
