Disc Golf Course

The disc golf course at Seymour Smith Park is a great everyman’s course. It’s very challenging with a few holes that are pretty gimmicky depending on the pin placement. The best time to play here is on weekdays. The weekends are crazy busy here so if you want to get in some rounds, it’s best to come early or later.

Disc golf is a sport similar to soccer, where players try to throw a disc into a basket at the end of a hole. The Omaha park’s 18-hole course is a popular destination for residents and visitors.

Soap Box Derby

Soap box cars are unpowered vehicles that rely on gravity to race down a track. The cars are made of a two-inch pine plank, plywood sides, and sheet aluminum on top. The driver sits in the middle and must remain inside the car during a race.

Originally, neighborhood boys would race their homemade cars on city streets in Dayton in 1933. A photographer for the local newspaper saw them and convinced his boss to sponsor a citywide derby. 40,000 people turned out to watch the event, which pitted winners of local races against each other.

The race was mainly for boys, but girls were allowed to compete starting in 1971. Karlye Murphy, a 17-year-old from Hilton, New York, was the first girl to win an All-American Derby championship in the Rally Super Stock division. She also became the first two-time champion in 1994. The park is home to the AllPlay Complex, the nation’s finest barrier-free sports and recreation complex for people with disabilities.
