This area is great for a run or biking! Busy enough to feel safe and but not busy enough to drive you crazy. Spend a lazy summer day fishing or walking. Be sure to swing by the visitors center if you need more info. The trails are clean and you can catch a glimpse of deer and snakes on occasion.... More

Another classic midwest lake-park. Nice 4-6 mile trail surrounding it, fishing, various playgrounds and picnic shelters in the cover of the surrounding trees. Low-key but just a great place to be. Paved trail is not so busy that you can't bike or jog.

While visiting my son I thought we'd take my 4 year old grandson out to hunt for morel mushrooms. We never found any but we did find bones from a deer and took a long walk on one of their nature trails. It was very relaxing and quite peaceful. When we were leaving the parking lot we saw approx. 8... More

A great recreation area for people to play sports; to walk, jog, fish, boat, picnic or drive. Numerous, numerous geese overhead on their migration path. As we drove around we must have spotted 30 white tail deer. The sunset was absolutely gorgeous through the trees. This Area must be even more beautiful in Spring and Fall. Nothing like this in...

Took our kids here a while back. This is a hidden treasure in Omaha. I don't think many people know about it. Lots of trails. Great for walking or bike riding. Seems really huge once you get inside.

I love this park, the loop around takes us about 45 min on bike, and you can always double around over the bridge to add and extra 15 minutes. We always see some wildlife and the fresh air and nature is good for us. Love it and bike it regularly.

We try to get out to Chalco a couple times a month for a walk with the dog, run or bike ride. Great place to see the seasons change. Kept fairly clean all the way around. Will always see some sort of wildlife while you are there.

We traveled out to Chalco Hills to walk around the lake on a volkswalk. It was paved the whole way, was fairly flat, but a few hills. Saw some wildlife including deer.

This is such a beautiful place to kayak, go fishing, or just walk around the many trails! There is a great nature playground that kids can play on along with many picnic areas to bring your own lunch! I even took my son's pictures there because the background is so beautiful!
