The lake is a no wake lake and has depths to about 25 feet. It was drained a couple of years ago because of zebra mussels. Not sure if that problem is gone. Fishing is poor at best but really never was very good.

Love that you can run in a safe area for many miles. Most running paths end after about 4-5 miles but you can do both lakes for about 7-8 miles. Usually pretty busy with bikers and other runners. Everyone is always really friendly along the path. The big lake (between 156th and 168th) is more well walked than the small... More

This is a beautiful place to bike, walk, and picnic. The park with the sand buckets were a blast for my kids!

There's a big side (east of 168th) and a small side (west of 168th) - the big side tends to be busier, but is a nice 4.3 miles or so, pretty flat. The small side is a little over 3 miles, and usually has less traffic. Both sides have decent scenery. If you're looking for a spot to run, give... More

Zorinsky is very popular but large enough to not feel overly crowded. The paved trails make for easy walking during any weather and the scenes around the lake are diverse as you make the loops. One of our favorite spots in Omaha to enjoy outdoors.

Zorinsky Lake has long been known for decent ice fishing in winter and occasionally a large Walleye is landed there, but the real attraction is the fishing dock. It has easy access and if you are taking your kids for their first fishing adventure, there are loads of small Bluegill around the Fishing Dock. Just be sure to use a... More

Lake is nice, but very crowded at times, especially evenings and weekends. Seems like this year the city is not keeping it maintained as well as in past. Mowing is not done as well, and there are a number of areas on the trails that have mud washed over from the spring, never cleaned up. Thankfully, local volunteers pick up... More

this is a first class facility. the multiple playgrounds are each unique and offer a different experience each time. And the different structures cater to different age groups as well. Plenty of parking. Never feels crowded.

The trails are great for riding a bike, jog, or walk. All the surroundings are clean and well kept. On a sunny day, you can even forget that you are in Omaha. It looks like any great park in a big city, a break from he noise and cement. Love it.
