Omaha Parks Foundation

Omaha Parks Foundation

The Omaha Parks Foundation is an independent 501(c)3 providing a separate fundamental service to the community since 2010. The Foundation is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors and although we work closely with the Omaha Parks & Recreation Department on many projects, we are a separate, private-fiduciary partner non profit organization. 

The Omaha Parks Foundation recognizes the financial challenges of the Parks & Recreation Department, and presents an opportunity to gain support for special park projects that cannot be addressed by the city budget. The Foundation enables public-private partnerships, and helps fund a variety of park projects and impact the community in positive ways by providing destinations that encourage wellness and a healthy lifestyle. 

All of Omaha can be enhanced with safe, convenient, and user friendly Parks and Recreation facilities. Please check out the OPF website for more information, previous and current projects, current great pictures, and ways you can volunteer
