Cody park is a nice place to get away from the hustle and bustle of North Platte, playground for the kids and plenty of walking trails and shady trees to sit under and read a book. There is also a static display of historic Union Pacific Railroad equipment to check out if you like that kind of stuff.

If you like to get up close and personal with some very historic and famous Railroad engines and cars this is your place. Located in North Platte's original City Park it is off the beaten path for those traveling I-80 but is worth the detour north on Transcontinental Highway 83 at North Platte. The displays are located on the east... More

This park does have deer, elk, buffalo to look at along with lamas and peacocks. but the over abundance of geese have left the roads where people walk and the grass that you could use for a picnic covered in goose poop which is not only gross but unsanitary. There is a concession stand that does have very good ice... More

During the summer there are a variety of children's rides available at a reasonable price. This is a large park which is easy to get to so if you are on a long trip and need a break, stop for a picnic and a little relaxation.

We were here to visit the observation tower, but found this in a brochure. It was several trains that you can climb on and look inside. The museum itself closed 45 minutes before posted opening hours, so missed the inside of this museum.
