Stopped here for a romantic stroll on my hubby's birthday. There were more buildings than trees in our view, and the lake isn't big enough to really enjoy looking at. Nice to have in the middle of the city though.

The lack is surrounded by a beautiful park setting. We enjoyed walking around the perimeter of the lake. There are plenty of places to have a nice bbq and large grass areas to play some football or baseball. The park is very well maintained.

Nice for a two mile run or long walk, decent fishing, nice playground and lots of open space. Golf course nearby.

Holmes park and lake are located in Lincoln. Once you are in the park it is hard to tell you are in town. The lake is a nice fishing place with lots of spots to throw in a line. You won't catch any whales here, but if you like pan sized fish, it is great. As for the park, it is neat, clean and with plenty of restrooms that are clean. There are excellent facilities for children - - slides, swings etc. Parking for all these activities is convenient except when there is a home football game, as parking lots are full of fans who are picked up by bus. There are well maintained trails for hikers, bickers and I have seen handicapped folks with walkers ands wheel chairs. All seem to be managing well and having a great time.
