I visit this park regularly with my dogs. There is an extensive trail system that runs throughout the park, well maintained, that winds through trees and up and down hills. At the center of the park is the Pinewood Bowl, an outdoor amphitheater. The east side of the park is often used for weddings; and the west side of the... More

Pioneers park is a very big area. Lots of walking trails, biking and play areas. We like going to the nature area with the grandkids. Very educational. It's a great place to have a family picnic and enjoy the day.

The park is hugh with lots to see and do. My purpose of going to Pioneer Park was to do some Geocaching. I did quite a bit of hiking in the park to find all the geocaches, but it was well worth it. Lots of activities for all ages. Hopefully, I can return soon.

A great park with lots to see & do. An interesting nature center as well as fields of buffalo & elk. The park is plenty big for jogging or bicycling and hanging out by any of the ponds is beautifully tranquil. Also, the Pinewood Bowl is beautiful for musical and play productions!!

This is a great park. It is large enough to bike around, find a private area for a picnic, playground equipment for the littles, and even a nature house. It's a great place to spend an afternoon.

It is a large park on the southwest side of Lincoln, with many places to explore. Do a drive thru and find an area, and go walking. The west side of the park has a nature center with elk and bison. There is Pinewood Bowl that puts on concerts and plays in spring and summer, check web page for info... More

They have the feeders setup near the nature center with a fence with openings so that young children (and some of us older folks as well) can get up close and personal to the birds at the feeders. We took the grand kids and saw Downy Woodpeckers, White-breasted Nuthatches, Red-winged Blackbirds, Goldfinches, Rose-breasted Grosbeaks to name a few. Then we... More
