Omaha City Park Won’t be a Problem Much Longer

Posted: Updated:

OMAHA (KPTM)- One of Omaha's most historic parks will be getting a renovation, and not a moment too soon.

"It's total disrespect for people who love this park," said Delbert Franklin.

Franklin said he has been going to Levi Carter park since he was a kid. "This is our park," said Franklin.

He said there used to be parties, concerts and barbeques at the park. "It's a beautiful place, they just need to step up and fix these bathrooms," said Franklin.

Two historic bathhouses sit near the south east side of the park. One burnt down years ago and one has been locked up. "I can guarantee that they have not been open since 13 years ago," said Franklin.

Franklin said he'd like to see the bathrooms fixed, so the park can return to what it used to be. City Parks Director, Brook Bench, agreed, and said the city received a fifty thousand dollar donation to fix up the park.

"This is our park, this is what we love," said Franklin.

Bench said the city plans to start the repair sometime next year.
