A regional park located off South 70th Streets and Pioneers Boulevard. Various shelters, ballfields, playground, and nearby Holmes Golf Course and Hyde Observatory.
Holmes Lake Park is a 110-acre reservoir built by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for flood control purposes and recreation in 1962. While the Holmes Lake Park is owned by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, it is maintained by Lincoln Parks and Recreation. Lincoln Parks and Recreation is responsible for the management of the lake and the surrounding park.
Lake and park restoration efforts were needed due to excessive amounts of sediment and nutrients being deposited in the lake from 40 years of development and agricultural use nearby.
