Pano Thumbnail Hanscom Park
One of the oldest parks in Omaha is Hanscom Park. The 50 acre tract was donated in October 1872 by Andrew J. Hanscom and James Megeath. According to historians Savage & Bell, "No charge was made for the property, but the gift was upon condition that the city expend in improving it the sum of three thousand dollars in 1873, four thousand dollars each year for the three years following, five thousand in 1877, and the same amount in 1878; to forever keep the property in good order, and to grade and keep in good repair the streets by which the tract was bounded. The donation was accepted on these conditions, the property christened "Hanscom Park" (Savage, p. 437). The park is in what was the extreme southwestern part of Omaha. It is currently bordered by Woolworth Avenue on the north, Park Avenue on the east, Ed Creighton Avenue on the south and 32nd Avenue on the West.

A very beautiful park. Can't wait to see some winter images added to the site. Seasons are cooler in panoramic!
