The City of Blair has more than 150 acres of parks and a variety of recreational facilities, all of these described below.
Three of the parks - Steyer, Black Elk-Neihardt and Rhoades - together with the ground of Arbor Park School and the campus of Dana College form the Blair Community Arboretum, an affiliate site of the Nebraska Statewide Arboretum. Only Arbor Lodge in Nebraska City has more tree species than the Blair Arboretum.
Park hours are from dawn to dusk. Alcohol is not permitted. Dogs must be leashed, and you must clean up after your pet.
