You guessed it, Memorial Park is a popular…park (!) located near the Dundee neighborhood of Omaha.
Mem. Park has space to spare – it hosts the annual Bank of the West 4th of July concert, known to attract over 50,000 Omahans for a night of music and fireworks – and in addition to the huge lawn, there are historical monuments, a rose garden with various floral displays (gift of the Omaha Rose Society), and a whole bunch of flapping Stars and Stripes. There’s even a footbridge crossing Dodge so would-be park-goers from the South don’t have to play in traffic.
Created as a memorial for all of the men and women from Douglas County that have served in the armed forces, the park provides a playground, a baseball field, trails for walking and running, and plenty of green, green open spaces. Point your iPhone to 6005 Underwood Avenue and check it out!
