World O! Water is the perfect family-friendly active outdoor educational experience. Individuals and groups of all sizes are welcome to attend this once-a-year interactive program. For your safety and convenience, please observe the following policies and recommendations.
World O! Water Takes Place Rain Or Shine
While we hope it doesnʼt rain, it is after all, World O! Water and the the event will take place rain or shine. Should inclement weather occur, most events will move to the Papio-Missouri River NRD Natural Resource Center.
Be Prepared – Bring These Items With You
For your protection and to best take advantage of your time at World O! Water, we ask that you bring the following items:
- Re-fillable water bottles
- Closed-toed shoes (especially if you plan to use the climbing wall!)
- Reusable bag to store swag and crafts, and prevent litter
- Be ready to be outside and walking in all weather
It will be most convenient for you to park at the Papio-Missouri River NRD Natural Resource Center parking lot (located just past the 4-way stop when entering the park from the Giles Road entrance).
Handicap Accessible Parking
ADA designated parking spaces are available at the Papio-Missouri River NRD Natural Resource Center parking lot. Vehicles properly displaying valid disabled permit identification may use these spaces.
Dogs Must Be On A Leash
Yes, dogs are welcome to attend but must be kept on a leash at all times. Keep an eye on your dog to make sure he doesnʼt get overheated and be mindful of hot pavement. Water will be available for all dogs. All pet owners must pickup and throw away their pet’s waste.
