South Haymarket Park will be a destination park right here in the heart of Lincoln’s Haymarket. It is located southwest of 7th and N Streets. This park will support the continued growth of residential living downtown, catalyze economic development activity and tourism, and promote health equity and a livable community for all residents. Amenities will include an interactive water feature, destination playground, dog park, and in-ground skate park.

“South Haymarket Park will be a destination in this community for residents and visitors alike. We can’t wait to welcome Lincoln to this new space and watch it come to life.”
