Other attractions include a sky tram ride that gives you a bird's eye view of the entire park, a train ride that goes around the park, a carousel ride, and a camel ride, and a picnic area with a playground, etc.
All the animals were very active and vocal, the atmosphere was so amazing! Henry Doorly Zoo is by far superior to any Zoo or wild life park I've visited throughout the country including , San Diego.
Rowe sanctuary is an amazing place with loads of information about the birds and wild life, and their work to preserve the nature is commendable!
It takes some dedication to get up early before the sunrise and wait in the blind for the show at sunset, but this experience is right up there with the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone Park, or Niagara Falls.
Sunken Gardens Lincoln
The colors and textures well arranged, the park us super clean and well kept ( primarily by voluteers ans donations) Great photo ops at different times of the day.
It has beautiful flowers and we really enjoyed our time together, several times we returned for the walks in the beauty of nature.
the botanical walk through the Lauritzen gardens is wonderful for enjoying the beauty of nature as exhibited in the ever changing foliage of the seasons, as well as for the peace that comes from a walk in the wood...
The tram ride lets you experience all of the park and its displays at a leisurely pace, but, a walk around the park is the best way to take in all the sights and smells of a truly magnificent park.
There are other hiking trails in the park as well as picnic areas and a place launch a canoe or kayak into the Niorbrara River.
Great park, truly beautiful with a spectacular waterfall
Along with the park rangers, who are always very knowledgeable, volunteers at the monument do an outstanding job of enlightening the visitors of life back in the day.
When we went inside to the visitor center, the park ranger told great stories and we enjoyed the exhibits about the native peoples, the animals and plants, and of course the Oregon and Mormon trails.
The staff is great friendly its a self pace drive thru animal park lots of bison deer just laying around in the middle there is a petting zoo and feed the goats then hike up the trail and see the wolves and the be...
We loved the layout of the safari park and we also enjoyed the walking and hiking trails too (easy).

The First National Bank has truly improved downtown Omaha by creating this lovely park that is filled of larger than life statues of settlers and wagons moving west.
We've taken visitors to this park and they all enjoy the life size sculptures as well as the plaques with historical data around the park.
Loved having adirondack chairs right outside our room to enjoy the peaceful beauty of the park (plus free wifi at the Lodge for those who want to check in with the outside world.
The park itself is spread out in an interesting setting, with meadows, trees, historic buildings, and scenic bluffs.

Heartland of America Park is a public park in downtown Omaha and is located just east of the Gene Leahy Mall and the Old Market, and sits just to the west of the Missouri River, and connects to Lewis & Clark Landing.
Visitors to the park can also enjoy fishing, paddle boats, climbing up to the top of the look out tower, use the picnic facilities or the other areas & buildings for weddings, meetings or theatrical productions.
This is handsdown one of the finest municipal parks in the U.S. From bike trail to fishing there is something for everyone.
From video to interactive stations to hiking trails to the extremely knowledgeable park rangers, you can learn about geology, fossils, scientific methods, American Indian culture, and many other concepts.
Ranger AJ and Ranger Emmanuel are exceptional and tremendous assets to the National Park Service.
This is a great place to visit - but you need to know that this is in a Nebraska State Park - which means there is a fee to be in the park as well as an admission fee for the house, barn and grounds.
We stopped at the Buffalo Bill Ranch State Historical Park while passing through and it turned out to be a great little museum.
Lake McConaughy Ogallala
A Magnificent Force of Nature!
Nebraska is the only state I know of that you have to pay to go into the parks.
We had the pleasure of visiting Arbor Lodge State Historical Park over the Arbor Day weekend.
Arbor Lodge State Park is one of seven lovely parks in Nebraska City...a must see whether staying or just traveling through.
This park is huge and has just about everything you could want - fishing, boating, walking and bike trails, a water park, play grounds, picnic areas and huge sports fields --what a treasure to find!!!
Hiking, kayaking, bike riding, or simply exploring nature
And as for the forest, we saw it in all its late summer lushness from the one-mile riverview boardwalk at the Nature Center and the half-mile Gifford boardwalk a short drive away (bonus: the Missouri River observa...
The trails that are deeper in the forest are where the real fun is (a couple go all the way down to the Missouri River), just be sure to grab a map at the nature center before setting off on your adventure.
You can easily make the jog a three-miler by crossing the pedestrian bridge over the railroad tracks off of Heartland Park and jog a bit along the river and back.
Serene, as you take in nature and view Omaha from the downtown point of view.
Located in downtown Omaha, this large outdoor park has life-size depictions of pioneers moving with their livestock, children, and wagons westward.
It was so nice to stop here and walk around the park and experience the life-sized casts of a moment in time for a pioneer train moving westward.
Mahoney State Park is the perfect year round destination for a day, a weekend, or an extended stay to hike, bike, swim, golf, climb, and when the weather turns cold do some sledding or ice skating.
Even though the park may be more popular in the summer, I'd strongly recommend a visit during the winter, as the scenery, wildlife, and trails are breathtaking.
There in a place to park by the cemetery but after that you have to get out and walk a sort distance into the cemetery.
Take in your National Park Access Pass - you get a discount even though it is a state historical society who runs it.
The pathway continues both north and south along the river...you will encounter the Heartland of America Park to the south, the Bob Kerry Pedestrian Bridge to the north...so you can really stretch your legs and en...
It has exhibits, a shop featuring books about the National Parks and the Great Plains, and an information area where one can get questions asked about the national parks.
The day we visited Kenefick Park it was chilly and overcast, we were heading out at the end of our vacation and therefore a bit tired, and we had read reviews about there being a lot of stairs and weren't sure how...
Just passing through to Denver, we got off for a short bit to see the park mainly to see the Big Boy and DDA40X engines on display.
The addition of gravel walking/running paths a few years ago made the park even more enjoyable and you can run/ bike there from many of the excellent bike paths.
Nature in the City! and Family Fun too!
Fascinating geological park - the guide is worth picking up from the entrance gate, very informative and suitable for all except young children.
The White River rock strata (the same Oligocene rocks as Badlands National Park) have been eroded into a fabulous miniature landscape of drainages, mesas, buttes, and river channels.
Beautiful park, well maintained trails, mix of paved trails & mulch trails, some hills, but generally easy walk.
This is a great little spot with lovely trees on a hillside that invites you for a walk and some quiet time in nature
