Park
“Feed the ducks at River's Edge Park, walk around the lake, depending on the time of year, the water fountain is amazing. Great place for picnics (again, weather permitting), running, or for a nice jaunt. Bob the Bridge, a little over a half a mile long, goes right over the MO river and connects Council Bluffs and Omaha. It's an excellent spot for bike riding, it has trails leading up and from it. There's bike share if you don't have a bike. Going over the bridge can actually take you all the way to the park! ”
