This is a popular destination for family photos. It seems that the many flowers and trees, the nice landscape and a couple of wooden bridges make it ideal for amateur and pro photographers. Usually on Sundays you'll see the place packed. The trails seem nice and the surrounding sort of makes you forget that you're next to a mega high... More

This is a very nice arboretum in central Omaha. Well kept up and landscaped. Nice walking trails and good parking. We had a nice walk with 2 of our grandkids and thoroughly enjoyed it.

We held our son's wedding at the OPPD Arboretum in mid June and had a great experience. Of course we were concerned about an outdoor wedding but mother nature was at her best. I am sure that many people are not aware of the Arboretum because the trees blend so well with the surrounding area. Every species of Nebraska tree... More

This is a great place that is centrally located in Omaha to get all kinds of outdoor pictures. There is a bridge, wooded area, etc. Can't wait to see how the pictures turned out!

This place is looking really good right now. The landscaping is coming into a nice mature phase. The fresh leaves and blooms are an awesome sight week by week as they fill in. There is sometimes a pair of red tailed Hawks hunting.

Different concept than your typical arboretum. The power company is using the arboretum to educate homeowners about the most (and least appropriate) trees to plant near powerlines. We enjoyed seeing the variety of trees on display.

Well-maintained park setting with numerous varieties of trees and shrubs. Paved paths throughout. Lots of great backgrounds and settings for family or senior class photos.

This park is truly a hidden gem in Omaha. There are walking paths that go for quite a distance through the park. Many paths are paved and others are wood chips. Plants and trees are labeled and everything is well maintained. You may even happen upon a wedding taking place in the park.

The path is well manicured and if you just have an hour or so to get outside this is a great walking path. It is nice for family pictures also, they have a nice gazebo.
