The Elkhorn Public School enrollment continues to grow by over 6% every year. August 2015 marked the 29th consecutive year of enrollment growth! The schools offer cultural, educational, and retail advantage, while still maintaining a small community feel. Students wishing to continue their education can move on to higher education opportunities at nearby UNO, Creighton University, Bellevue University, or Iowa Western Community College.
Elkhorn residents who like the outdoors will enjoy multiple golf courses in the Elkhorn area, along with local parks, swimming pools, and skating rinks. There are also indoor recreation centers, such as Common Ground Community Center, which houses an indoor pool and hosts fitness classes. In the summer, Tubing & Adventures is a popular spot to float down the Elkhorn River. Tubing & Adventures rent tubes, and kayaks and offers riverfront camping. The Elkhorn community has enough adventure of its own, but if you’re looking for more the Omaha area is just a short drive away.
