“Outstanding Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

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.

“Great Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013 via mobile

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!!

“Great for any person”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

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.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

A beautiful park in the middle of the city, you will feel you are at National Park. Beautiful landscaping, horse trails, and nature center. Plenty to keep you busy all day.

“Fun place to get out and explore”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

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 as it is only occasionally. Great place for a picnic, children to run and play, nature walks and the like. lincoln.ne.gov/city/parks/naturecenter/
