“Great play area, terrible bathroom facilities.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

The grotto and fountain down by the creek are so pretty and peaceful. It really doesn't feel like you are in the middle of the city. Elmwood is one of the best playgrounds and picnic spots in the area, but the bathroom options stink. The city of Omaha can do better than a port-a-potty in front of a broken bathroom.

“Great Park for Individual and Family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is a wonderful place in the heart of midtown Omaha. Surrounded by the University of Nebraska Omaha and a very prestigious neighborhood, this park is a wonderful place for a walk, jog, or stroll with significant other, family, or pet. There is a playground for kids and large open areas for games and recreation. The paths are large and extensive and offer plenty of room for joggers, walkers, and bikers. The park is connected through the campus or neighborhood to Memorial Park on the north side of Dodge Rd. The park also has picnic areas with grills and tables, softball fields, and open areas. Large trees offer plenty of shade if desired.

“A gem hidden away in the heart of Omaha”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

We love this park and only wish it were closer to our home. It has walking/biking trails, picnic areas, swimming in the summer, playground equipment, a golf course and lots of wide open spaces to spend quality time with family and friends.
Our ethnic group rented the pavillion in June and had a celebration......since rain would not let up that day, we moved all of the festivities inside and had a marvelous time....even though the structure is old, it has character as well as tables, restrooms, electricity and running water. During the summer, Elmwood Park is right down the hill from Shakespeare on the Green at UNO......check this gem out!

“A beautiful and quiet place”

We spent a lot on time in Elmwood when my kids went to UNO. Lots of trees. Plenty of space and places for picnics. Several activities go on during the season.
