What We Do

The Omaha Parks Foundation (OPF) encourages public-private resources to enhance the quality of Omaha's park system, including parks, community centers, sports fields, camps, water parks, and golf courses. Although we work closely with the Omaha Parks & Recreation Department on many projects, we are a private-fiduciary partner to multiple government and non-profit institutions.
OPF helps facilitate donations to community centers and several local projects, create awareness of issues that our parks, trails, and green spaces face, and help fulfill items from the city’s “wish list” of needs they are unable to fund.

Interesting Info

All aspects of Omaha's park system are open to visitors and residents alike, in neighborhoods or as a destination site.
There are 248 park system operations and they are growing every year, covering over 10,100 acres.
Remnants of the USS Omaha, a retired nuclear sub, will become a submarine-sized platform and new park area along Abbott Drive.
