Overlooking the Omaha Bend of the Missouri River, the Kenefick Park featuring its two vintage locomotives and lush botanical gardens encompassing about a hundred acres will be a perfect historical treat to the visitors. Along the Interstate 80, you can see the Union Pacific Centennial #6900 and the Union Pacific Big Boy #4023 locomotives which are definitely the main points of attraction of the Kenefick Park. The Centennial #6900 boasts of being the most powerful and the largest locomotive run by diesel and electricity while the Big Boy #4023 boasts of being the largest steam operated locomotive. The park also features a great staircase, plazas, “canyon” stone walls, walkways, sculptures, seating areas and a number of interpretative signage depicting the contribution of the locomotives in the city.

Kenefick Park Reviews & Ratings

  • I love this park! It’s a great place for taking the kids and taking pictures. Our favorite part is the Union Pacific locomotives. It’s a great scene at the edge because you can take pictures! Hope you have a great time there and stay safe!

  • It is a great place to see right up close the running gear of a Big Boy locomotive. How did anyone place a million pound loco onto this perch above the interstate? Wow!

  • Great little park with two awesome trains and great signs explaining the history of them and why they are sitting in Omaha. Beware, Google Maps might try to take you to a road where there is no access to the park. Make sure you go to the botanical garden, where the entrance to Kenefick Park is located.

  • Great view of river, one of the handful of Big Boy locomotives produced, worth the quick jaunt off the interstate.

  • A must see if you are a train fan. Pretty easy to get to. They have a ramp if you can't do the stairs. Awesome view. Nice roadside stop
