History

Though the Omaha Native American tribe held the land for thousands of years, a treaty signed with settlers across the Missouri River in Council Bluffs, Iowa in 1854 opened the possibility of claiming land in Nebraska. In 1867, Omaha and Lincoln competed to become the state's capital city, with the latter taking the title. Despite this, later that year business leaders developed the commercial district Jobbers Canyon and many of Omaha's stockyards. The massive economic benefits of both these projects brought more businesses to the area, resulting in a population boom. To support these new citizens, the city built outward, developing rural areas such as Woodlyn Park. Over time, Woodlyn Park and the surrounding neighborhoods grew in importance as suburban housing for Omaha's professionals. Unfortunately, the lack of public venues means no art scenes or annual events happen within the neighborhood. Furthermore, Woodlyn Park holds no museums detailing its history.

Transportation

The easiest method of transport in Woodlyn Park undoubtedly remains driving. Major highways servicing the area include Interstate 680 and U.S. 6, though neither pass directly through the neighborhood. North 120th Street forms the east border of the neighborhood and connects Woodlyn Park with the outside world. Because of the lack of public venues, the only free street-side and driveway parking exists in Woodlyn Park. Furthermore, taxis and Uber rarely visit the neighborhood without a call. The low traffic levels of Woodlyn Park make the neighborhood ideal for pedestrians and cyclists, despite the lack of dedicated bike lanes. Sidewalks connect all of the neighborhood's streets for pedestrians. Furthermore, routes 98 and 22 of Omaha's public transportation system, the Metro, cater to the neighborhood.

Though multinational chains make up most of these stores, a handful of locally owned shops still operate. Baker's fills Woodlyn Park's grocery needs, as well as a handful of farmers markets, such as the Farm Fresh Market, and Stratbucker's Farms and Markets. All of these options make finding fresh food and produce a breeze for Woodlyn Park's residence. When in need of outdoor decor, plants and landscaping materials, the neighborhood turns its head to Mulhall's. Not only does this store contain a massive selection of plants and flowers, they also deliver and install larger features, such as fountains and outdoor lighting rigs. The staff earnestly tries to pair home owners with decor that suits their home, and this dedication to customer service proves the primary reason people drive from across the city to visit Mulhall's. South of Woodlyn Park sits one of Omaha's best tennis shops, the Racquet Corner. This store sells and repairs racquets of all kinds, though it primarily focuses on tennis equipment. Furthermore, the Racquet Corner features a unique trial period on all their racquets; patrons may take home one or more racquets for a set period of time to sample them in real-world situations before purchasing.

Outside of sporting events and private exercise groups, little to no events occur at Tranquility Park on a regular basis.
