Wilderness Park

4700-4798 S 1st St
Lincoln, NE 68510


At 1,472 acres, Wilderness Park, located in southwest Lincoln, is the City’s largest park. As its name implies, the park is a natural area that straddles the Salt Creek floodplain and stretches from Van Dorn Street on the north to Saltillo Road on the South. The Park was established to serve as flood storage for Salt Creek and as a unique park experience for residents and visitors to Lincoln. The Park also serves as a conservation area and is home to many species of plants and animals. Visitors are encouraged to enjoy these creatures, but not to remove or disturb them in any way.
