The Danish Vennelyst Park first opened in 1936. There were many activities held at the park in the past. For example, dances were a popular attraction, along with concerts. Many people would get together and have a good time. This park made it possible for the Danish people to get together in the Omaha area and reconnect on a cultural level and enjoy traditional things from their homeland ranging from decadent food and dances, to entertaining games and activities.
