The Revitalization Association of Weeping Water invites you to visit our charming town, located 35 miles south of Omaha, and 34 miles east of Lincoln. Whether you’re a local or you’re just passing through, Weeping Water offers something for everyone. Stop in for a little shopping, grab a bite to eat, watch a ball game, visit the museum, or take a stroll around our beautiful city lake.
Gazebo Area Restoration Project
Efforts to revitalize the gazebo area began in 2019. RAWW volunteers joined Weeping Water Garden Club for a day of cleanup and planting. They installed tulips and daffodils near the gazebo and began arranging the surface of a small reservoir. The bubbling rock feature was added, along with more electrical outlets at the space, which will allow city groups to hold small concerts, plays or speaking events.
In June 2022, Nebraska Main Street Network awarded RAWW with the Streetscape/Public Improvement Project Inspiring Excellence Award for their efforts on the gazebo project. The Inspiring Excellence Award recognizes businesses, individuals, projects and activities that contribute to the economic and social vibrancy of downtown business districts in communities throughout the state.
RAWW's most recently completed project is Elam's Landing fishing dock at the city lakes. Elam’s Landing is a 20-foot by 12-foot handicap-accessible fishing pier along the north edge of the east lake. It provides a safe, convenient handicap-accessible fishing dock for young and old alike. This new scenic attraction encourages outdoor activity and tourism to our beautiful campground and lakes. With the help of many volunteers and sponsors the project was a success and the dock was officially dedicated during the Party on the Rocks Fall Festival on September 23, 2022. In October 2022, RAWW was named the Hometown Pride winner by Farmers & Merchants Bank for their efforts with community projects including the new Elam's Landing dock.
