This is nearly a daily activity for hounds Ani and Jesi2 to come here, run, hunt, and play. Always a favorite hike area also. Maintenance crew here works hard to keep everything nice for everyone.

I walk my dog here all the time, we like the hilly terrain through the trees on the east side of the park. Oldfather Prairie is a great place to bike off road and the hills are challenging. Check out the new addition, Lorma's Overlook,...More

I like to go fishing here. There is easy access to most areas of the lake. They have a separate swimming beach area. They have a covered area for family picnics and a play area for kids.

If you contact the City of Kearney, they will help you more with these questions. You can also use the shelter for the cover and then set up your own tables and chairs also. Great place to spend the day!!
