Another classic midwest lake-park. Nice 4-6 mile trail surrounding it, fishing, various playgrounds and picnic shelters in the cover of the surrounding trees. Low-key but just a great place to be. Paved trail is not so busy that you can't bike or jog.

A great recreation area for people to play sports; to walk, jog, fish, boat, picnic or drive. Numerous, numerous geese overhead on their migration path. As we drove around we must have spotted 30 white tail deer. The sunset was absolutely gorgeous through the trees....More

Took our kids here a while back. This is a hidden treasure in Omaha. I don't think many people know about it. Lots of trails. Great for walking or bike riding. Seems really huge once you get inside.

I love this park, the loop around takes us about 45 min on bike, and you can always double around over the bridge to add and extra 15 minutes. We always see some wildlife and the fresh air and nature is good for us. Love...More

We traveled out to Chalco Hills to walk around the lake on a volkswalk. It was paved the whole way, was fairly flat, but a few hills. Saw some wildlife including deer.

This is such a beautiful place to kayak, go fishing, or just walk around the many trails! There is a great nature playground that kids can play on along with many picnic areas to bring your own lunch! I even took my son's pictures there...More
