Freedom Park is an outdoor park and museum at the Greater Omaha Marina on the bank of the Missouri River at 2497 Freedom Park Road in the East Omaha section of Omaha, Nebraska. It displays numerous military aircraft and artillery pieces along with its two major exhibits, the World War II minesweeper USS Hazard (AM-240) and Cold War-era training submarine USS Marlin (SST-2).[2] The park is currently closed indefinitely for flood cleanup.

Exhibits

Previously the medium landing ship USS LSM-45 was anchored at the park, but she was moved to North Carolina in the spring of 2004.[3]
