Great Display (Monument?)
Dec. 2019
Worth the trip. Two of the biggest locomotives ever built in a very nice display. A little off the beaten path, but parking is plentiful and a reasonably safe walk

Must see!
Dec. 2019 • Solo
It is a small park with 2 Union Pacific Trains with some history around it for informational purposes which has been well done. I recommend this as it is free and can be done at any time the Lauritzen Gardens are open.

Easy access off I-80
Dec. 2019
Can't believe we passed by this on our way out west multiple times and see it overlooking the I-80 and didn't realize that it was so easily accessible. A defnite must see when going from Iowa/Nebraska I-80. It was literally a mile off I-80, and quite the view overlooking the I-80. Beautiful scenery and easily accessible by a set of stairs or on a paved path to the right of the stairs. Parking is plentiful as it is near the Lauritzen Gardens (another must see).

Great place for train fans

Free to visit. Small park dominated by giant Union Pacific steam and diesel locomotives overlooking I-80. A must-see for any train fan!

There is an UNMARKED ramp to the right of the stairway, it makes for a lot easier trek up to view the trains.

Magnificent Union Pacific Trains
Sep. 2019 • Couples
Like creatures of a bygone era, the diesel and steam locomotives stand as sentinels. Drive back to Kenefick Park and park. Walk up the Grand Staircase. Then take in the beautiful view. The wheels on the steam engine dwarf many adults. The size of these testaments to the Age of Rail are incredible. A fitting accompaniment to a tour of the Union Pacific Railroad Museum.

Neat space to visit
Jul. 2019 • Family
We have driven past the trains over I-80 many times, but recently visited for the first time. We were very impressed with the trains and the views. If you haven’t been, definitely check it out. Especially if you’re a train buff.

Eye Candy everywhere.
Jun. 2019
So much to see at this park. We just happened upon it while visiting over the weekend. Lot's of varied terrain but easy walking path. It seem as the perspective changes constantly. You can be looking that the same feature but it provides a new scene depending on the vantage point. It makes for a great late afternoon or early morning stroll. Very well maintained.

UP Locomotives
May 2019 • Family
We went here to see the 2 locomotives as you enter Nebraska from Omaha. There are two engines, one steam and one diesel. Can read about the history of the engines and take photos but that is about it. The kids enjoyed seeing them. It is FREE to go up and see the locomotives (the botanical garden at the bottom of the hill is not). Worth a 15-20 minute stop over to check them out.
