Pioneers Park

This is a nice big park with cement trails or the option to roam freely. Very peaceful off the main trail. Relax under a group of pine trees and listen to the birds! :)

This place was great for the whole family. Miles of walking/biking/skating trails, picnic areas, a couple of historic buildings, and buffalo! There were supposed to be some sculptures but I ran out of time and didn't find them. Very nice nature area, a building with a few animals to see and people to tell you about the park, a pond...

A nice peaceful place to walk around. There are a couple cool statues to take pictures of. There were some ducks on the lake. When I was there it appeared there was a fundraiser run happening. A nice little probably don't' need more then an hour to check it out, but could spend several hours if you need to relax.

Very nice city park with varying things to do and see. The wildlife, monuments, amphitheater, playground and native vegetation were very nice and interesting

I had some time to spend one morning while my friend, whom I was visiting, was at work. Pioneer Park was a nice change of pace from the city. Terrific view of the capitol at Bison Path and some wonderful art throughout. The buffalo, schoolhouse, cabin and nature center add to the charm.

I was in Lincoln for work and had some free time in the evening. I walked around Pioneer Park and was very impressed. There are several ponds, statues, buffalo, old country school house, and much more. Very nice walking/running paths.
