History of Mahoney Park

Mahoney Park, originally named Northeast Park, was created following a project approval from the Department of Outdoor Recreation in 1969. Development was expected to include a multitude of recreational opportunities for the public, such as a swimming pool, basketball courts, baseball and soccer fields, 18-hole grass green golf course, picnic areas, playgrounds, landscaping, and winter sports. 

When the park was proposed, Lincolnites praised the “tremendous amount of potential” that Northeast Park had for all sorts of different activities. It was written in 1969 during the time where the Parks and Recreation Department was still envisioning this park, that there “are recreational opportunities for virtually every city resident”. 

Following the completion of the park in 1971, proposals for the Mahoney Golf Course quickly followed. However, even though the course was met with immediate excitement by the public, construction was slow. Funding for many park projects, including Mahoney Golf Course, was cut in the early 1970s. It wasn’t until the mid 1970s that funding and labor for the golf course was put together. 

Mahoney Golf Course was completed in August of 1976. Mahoney Park has been continuously improved throughout the years, and stands as a jewel in northeast Lincoln. Lincolnites noticed it early, this park not only has recreational opportunities for virtually every resident, but it does still have a tremendous amount of potential.
