David City Park

This 85-acre park, located in the county seat of Butler County, has seen great growth and change from the original 12-acres of park land that was donated in 1889. The main entrance of the park features two twenty-foot concrete pylons dedicated as a memorial to World War I Veterans. Directly past the entrance is a large athletic field, site of football games and track meets for local sports teams.

In addition to updated playground equipment, the park features a basketball court, tennis court, sand volleyball pit, Aquatic Center and Golf Course. There are 3 ponds situated on the south side of the park, and a trail that runs along the edge. Benches are set up along the trail for folks to sit and enjoy the scenery, and to watch the various animals that call David City Park Home.

The updated David City Aquatic Center opened for business in the summer of 2001. It is a 5,700 + square foot pool and 23,000 square foot bathhouse that can hold up to 500 people. The large water park slide, diving boards, and fountains makes the David City Aquatic Center one of the premier city pools in Northeast Nebraska.

For Golf enthusiasts, David City Golf Club is open to the public with very minimal fees. This is a 9-hole course that offers  the only island tee box in the state. The Club House offers a pro-shop, golf cart rentals, and a restaurant.

And for the historic building lovers, the Schweser House (built in the 1940s), Caretakers Cottage (built in 1941) and Municipal Auditorium (built 1941-1943) all offer a look at the various popular building construction modes of the time. The Auditorium and Schweser House are still in use today for public gatherings and social events.
