Mission Statement:

To perpetuate the memory of those veterans who gave their lives in the pursuit of their duties while serving their country. That their dedication, deeds and supreme sacrifice be a constant source of motivation toward greater accomplishments. We, as volunteers of the park, pledge loyalty and patriotism to the United States of America and its Constitution.

Freedom Park through its exhibits and volunteers will also endeavor to educate all third parties it comes in contact with about the services our Naval Veterans performed and how their sacrifices made possible the freedom and lifestyle we enjoy today

Program History:

The park opened in 1974 and closed around 2004. The City of Omaha opened the park again in 2008 and it has been increasing the numbers of volunteers used and the hours it is open since. Volunteers are always needed for many jobs in the park.


We have many groups using the park for Memorial Services, re-inlistment in the Armed Forces, NJROTC Training, picnics and reunions

Additional Information:

Taking a look at the over 700 labeled pictures on the facebook page is a good way to see what the park is all about.

We have the only Admiral Class Minesweeper, the USS Hazard AM-240 left in existance. We have the only USN Target Submarine, USS Marlin SST-2 left in existance and have a complete collection of WWII USN Anti-aircraft Guns.

Many of the exhibits have been cleaned and repainted, thanks to various Eagle Scout projects.

The park is open to walk through  from 8-3 each day and we give tours of the ships from 10-3 on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.

Special Tours can be arranged by calling 402-444-5955 or emailing
