The man-made lake is the center feature of Holmes Park and is a Lincoln favorite for non-motorized boating, picnicking, and fishing. The park also offers ball diamonds, playground, golf course and Hyde Memorial Observatory. In winter, part of the lake is cleared of snow for ice skating and sledders fill the hills.

Wilderness Ridge is the most unique golf course in the state. Granite boulder-lined ponds and streams, waterfalls, bent grass fairways, more than 6,000 trees, and a 37,000 square foot log and stone lodge clubhouse create a fantastic resort style golfing experience. Featuring an 18-hole championship course and a nine-hole executive track, Wilderness Ridge is home to the Nebraska Golf Academy, Lincoln's only year-round practice to the facility and home to the University of Nebraska Golf Teams.
The Antelope Valley Trail runs roughly north-south through downtown Lincoln with the University of Nebraska on one end and Lincoln High School at the other. It begins near the Bob Devaney Center, a sprawling athletic complex and sports arena home to the Cornhuskers basketball, gymnastics, track and swimming teams. Mid-way along the route is Union Park Plaza, an urban park with impressive water features, artwork and an outdoor amphitheater, as well as Trago Park with its family-friendly playground and sprayground.
