Papillion is a great place to raise a family

Business Week ranked Papillion the best place to raise a family in 2013. Low crime, low unemployment, low crime combined with great schools, high income levels, and strong economy make it the best place to start and raise a family. Business Week

Papillion has great community activities

Papillion Days is a little piece of Americana that attracts twice the population of Papillion. Winter Wonderland every year on the first Saturday after Thanksgiving is basically a winter Hallmark movie. The Papillion Community Foundation helps organize these and other smaller events throughout the year. Maintaining the small town feel even as the city expands is a top priority in Papillion.

Papillion obsesses about getting better

In 2013, rated Papillion the #1 small town in America. Since then many new projects and renovations of old projects mean Papillion is only getting better. Ambitious new projects are being developed that will retain the small town feel while giving Papillion a nightlife and more family activities.

Papillion has a brand new ball park and amphitheater

Werner Park is home to Omaha’s minor league baseball team, the Storm Chasers, and also host many events throughout the year and Sumter Amphitheater host concerts and public or private events.

Papillion has a great library!

The public library may no longer be the hub of community education but not so in Papillion. The Sump Public Library is a beautiful facility with modern amenities and tons of events and classes. Sumter Library

Papillion has fun attractions.

Papio Bay Aquatic Center, Papio Bowl, and Papio Fun Park keep the whole family entertained. These quaint family entertainment centers are within walking distance to many neighborhoods and are a great and inexpensive way to spend a summer day with the family. In the summer a farmer’s market is hosted in Papillion Park every Wednesday.

Papillion is growing.

New neighborhoods are developing and these are not just new homes but little mini communities in themselves. Along with the homes, entertainment districts, live/work areas, and outdoor areas are developing right along side them. For example, the Bungalows on the Lake by Prairie Queen is a live/work development that is in walking distance from the North Shore neighborhood and a planned entertainment area next to Werner Park will be a place for residents in the new housing developments along 370 to hang out. And there will be plenty of people with dozens of new multifamily single family housing and rentals already approved and going up over the 5 to 10 years. Here,Here,Here
