Arboretum trails

WHAT IS IT? The length, in feet, of the arboretum trails at the OPPD Arboretum.

The Arboretum is a popular slice of nature in the middle of Omaha. Each year, nearly 25,000 visitors come to learn about electrical safety, vegetation-management practices and proper tree-planting around power lines. It is also one of the Omaha metro area’s most popular spots for photographers.

Plus, the 1.5 miles of trails are a great way to get some exercise while enjoying the great outdoors.
