Through the City of Omaha, taxable donations can be received for the park. See our updated pictures and info on Facebook under Freedom Park, Omaha, NE. Tempoarily closed due to flooding of the Park. We hope to open again this Fall (2011).

You really have to look hard to find it, but once you do it is totally worth the effort. My wife served in the Navy for several years and she was in heaven walking on the ship. An actual submarine, torpedoes, helicopters, just to name...More

By the Missouri river lies Freedom park featuring an old sub for you to inspect. Great place for a picnic or just to cop a squat.
