Mahoney State Park

Mahoney State Park

Eugene T. Mahoney State Park was first opened in 1991 after being acquired by the state in the mid-80s in recognition of State Senator Mahoney, who also served as Director of the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission for over 10 years. The state park has served as a recreational area for people of all interests to go outdoors. Complete with hunting grounds, fishing, swimming, hiking, horseback trails, and even a minigolf course, this state park has something for everyone! While you explore, hike through the numerous forest trails, or climb to the top of the Walter Scott Jr. observational tower to enjoy a breathtaking view of the Platte River and surrounding grassland and riverine ecosystems. If you choose to visit in the winter, the hillsides are perfect for sledding. As you traverse these 650 acres of land, you can explore woodland, wetland, and grassland ecosystems teaming with wildlife.

Tierra Park

Tierra Park

Owned by the city of Lincoln, Tierra Park is a simple 123-acre community park with winding trails, open green spaces, and trees that provide shade in the summer. It offers fresh air and an excellent opportunity to escape the urban bustle and explore the great outdoors while remaining in the city. The soccer field, skate park, disc golf area, and trail are open for activities, and there are also benches and a sheltered area for picnicking. One of the main trails, the 3-mile-long Tierra/Williamsburg Trail, started in the 90s and eventually expanded. It now connects to several other trails and recreation places, such as Yankee Hill and Pine Lake. Beal Slough also runs through the park as it makes its way through the center of Lincoln to converge with Salt Creek to the north. Plenty of ducks and geese can be seen along the trail, and you may even spot a deer or two drinking from the river’s edge.
