The North Park pickleball courts located at East Angus Street.

As we enter the long-awaited, week-long break, a new problem arises: how to kill the time. While many opt to go on a trip, for some that isn’t an option. Nevertheless, there are many ways to have fun on spring break here in the Gretna area. 

While some may prefer to be relaxing on a beach, or escaping on a mountain retreat, any of the above options are sure to add some excitement to your spring break right here in Nebraska.

    Indoor exercise can be a good option on days when the weather isn’t ideal but you still want to be active.
