Omaha Outdoor Recreation

Omaha is an outdoor enthusiast's playground. Tree-lined walking and biking trails wind through the city, five area lakes and two rivers provide a variety of boating and fishing opportunities, and the city's vast array of parks and gardens each offer their own unique fresh-air experience. Click here to utilize the city's Park Finder to find a park that offers the activities you're looking for.  

Since Omaha is located along the wooded Missouri River valley and along a main migratory path, it only makes sense that the area is a birding hotspot. Spring and fall are peak seasons, but because the area offers diverse bird habitat - lakes, prairies, woodlands and riverbanks - you will find a wide variety of bird species most any time of year.
