Kenefick Park was relocated in 2004 from downtown Omaha, where it opened in 1891. The move was made in order to accomdate construction of the Qwest Center Omaha.

Kenefick Park is adjacent to Lauritzen Gardens, home of the Omaha Botanical Gardens. Named for former CEO of the Union Pacific Railroad, John Kenefick, the park is home to two of the largest railroad locomotives ever built.
