This part is located between two campuses of the University of Nebraska at Omaha. It is hillier than expected. While you need to be a bit carefull not to be run over by a golf cart, it is quite enjoyable. You will see quite some birds and squirrels if you are patient.

This is the best park in Omaha. Like to exercise? There is a trail. Golfers? One of the best city run courses. Sports fields, playgrounds, picnic areas, swimming pool... This park has it all.

Great place for a walk, run or bike ride or picnic with friends and family. The park offers a play ground, exercise area, and ball field as well as open areas and a pavilion for special occasions.

Elmwood Park is a great park in midtown Omaha with trails and event space. There is a beautiful grotto area too that is great for family photos. Good place to go for a run or walk your dog. Kids play area as well. Close to the University of Nebraska at Omaha and Memorial Park.

Very clean park. Live the playgrounds here and a lot of area to walk or jog. One of my favorite parks to take my daughter while in Omaha.

In the middle of Omaha NE is one of the most beautiful parks and golf courses called Elmwood. If you play the course in the fall be ready to look for your ball with all the leaves on the ground.

One thing I like about this place it is an all in one. A park, golf course, swimming pool, baseball diamonds, and other activies that are accessable in the park. Saddly I only found one water fountain in the whole entire park :( The main reason I gave it 5 stars is cause there is a lot to do in... More

The fun history is that around the grotto when the park was founded 100+ years ago, they put monkeys in the trees on an island... More

Elmwood Park is beautiful with some very mature trees and play areas for the kids. The golf course is nice, larger than a par 3 but not a huge one either.
