Get active this summer with the Adventure Card

June 29th, 2016 by Live Well Omaha Kids

Warmer weather and longer daylight make for the perfect time to explore the community and venture to new places. Tracy Stratman, Recreation Manager at Omaha Parks and Recreation Department, tells us how our local parks and community centers offer lots of fun and exciting activities at no or low cost.

Picture1Omaha Parks and Recreation Department strives to provide and maintain a comprehensive park system that offers numerous opportunities for the citizens and visitors of the Omaha community to encourage a healthy, positive lifestyle that is essential to the quality of life. We have 232 parks and 120 miles of connective trail, collectively covering over 11,000 acres.  Parks and their amenities offer possibilities to improve one’s physical health, mental health, social function at any age and provide a number of environmental benefits to the community.  To visit your neighborhood park or one just down a trail, is not only an exciting adventure, but is also easy on your pocketbook.  Spice up your afternoon hike with a scavenger hunt of colors and sounds or a simple trail ABC’s game.  Summer is truly the time to experience and appreciate parks. Playgrounds, spray grounds, disc golf, Hydrant Parties, Party in the Parks and a number of other great activities from the Parks and Recreation Department are FREE.

There are a variety of activities we offer that do require a reasonable fee:

  • archeryDay Camps
  • Swimming Pool Passes
  • Community Center Weight room/Cardio room/Gym
  • Pavilion & Shelter Rentals
  • Swim Lessons
  • Learning on the Lake
  • Ice Skating
  • Trap & Skeet
  • Learn to Play Tennis
  • Golf
