Message from Omaha Parks & Recreation Director


I'd like to welcome you to our new web site and to the City of Omaha if you are a visitor. Thank you for taking the time to discover more about the Omaha EBJk4Vm1Parks and Recreation Department.

Omaha Parks and Recreation is very passionate in providing the citizens of Omaha with an amazing park system. We offer so many recreation activities and events for little or no cost for you and your family. With the many improvements being made it is my hope that the citizens of Omaha will continue to learn about the opportunities that may be found with Omaha Parks and Recreation.

Whether you’re a first-timer or a repeat visitor, we hope you enjoy and find pride in #OmahaParks.
I sincerely thank all who support our department, it is through that encouragement and assistance that make our projects possible.
