Snodgrass Family Reunion

JUNE 23 & 24


This reunion will be held in southeast Nebraska.

It's later than you think! We hope you will consider honoring a long standing family tradition by spending one summer weekend with extended family.

Schedule of Events:  (See link at left for map of locations.)

Friday Night: 6:30 p.m. - Wildwood Park in Nebraska City
Pot luck with meat provided. Michael will be doing smoked pork loin and hotdogs. We ask that local Nebraskans please bring a side dish and/or dessert. This is outdoors so don't forget to put on your bug spray. Group pictures will be taken this day.

Saturday: 5:30 p.m. - Coryell Park near Brock, Nebraska, in the auditorium (the large limestone building).
At 5:30 we'll have a catered meal of beef brisket, grilled chicken strips, potato, green beans, and dessert. We will have the auditorium open at 2:30 and of course the park is open all day. Come early to play and visit.

For those coming from the north on Saturday -- the bridge on Highway 128 about 1/4 mile east of Lorton is under construction. There is a detour around it on country roads (aka gravel). If you don't like gravel roads be advised.

Wildwood Park is located across from Steinhart Park in Nebraska City, and has much for you to do, see, and explore! It spans 63.7 acres and offers fishing, playground equipment, restrooms, and picnic tables and grills. If you are into art or history, then you won’t want to miss the Wildwood Historic Home and Art Barn, complete with a breathtaking and well-maintained Victorian Garden.

For those with a competitive spirit, Wildwood Park also includes sand volleyball courts and the Wildwood Golf Course. The latter consists of 9 holes, tree-lined fairways, extraordinary scenery, challenging greens, a Pro shop, and many special events, such as Family Glow Golf. If you would like more information on Nebraska City’s oldest golf course, be sure to visit or call 402-873-3661.

The Steinhart Park Aquatic Center is just a short walk away. Water Park evening hours are 6-8.

Access to Wildwood Historic Center and Park and the picnic shelter is via the entrance at 420 Steinhart Park Rd, Nebraska City. There is NO vehicle access to the picnic shelter off of Sylvan Road.

Coryell Park is 1 mile east and 3 miles south of Brock, Nebraska. Coryell Park was first homesteaded by the L.L. Coryell family in 1867. The park now serves as a commemoration of the revered spirit, values, and determination of these early Nebraska settlers. Coryell Park offers a quiet and peaceful setting where much recreation can be enjoyed. With the always popular playground equipment, covered bridge, Parker Log Cabin, pavilion, and a shrine, you can choose between an afternoon of rest and relaxation or sight-seeing and activity. There is even a charming little chapel on-site and the Treasure House, which is filled with collectibles from the family.

The street address for Coryell Park is 73203 633rd Ave., Brock, NE.
