The county seat of Sarpy County, Papillion has grown from a small railroad village founded in 1870, to one of the top-rated suburbs of the metro Omaha area. With a current population of over 19,000, it ranks in the top ten of many national surveys of smaller communities for its livability, affordability, educational system, and environment for raising a family.
It is known for its recreational facilities, many which are found in Halleck Park, a large, 70 acre green space found in the heart of the city. The park is home to trails, baseball fields, tennis and basketball courts, a large pavilion, playground areas, and a well-stocked fishing lake. Golf and aquatic facilities are found in other parks and clubs within the city. And for baseball fans, Werner Field, the new home of the Triple A Omaha Storm Chasers, is a popular venue.
Papillion’s business district retains its small town charm with shops, restaurants, and service businesses. There are also many similar facilities on the perimeters of the city with Shadow Lake Mall being a major site for national and regional stores and shops.
Education is well served through the Papillion-LaVista School district’s two high school, two middle schools, and six elementary schools. There are also several parochial schools in the area.
Homes with traditional charm, as well as many newer houses, condominiums and apartments provide a wide-selection of residential options. This, along with the amenities listed above, will continue to allow Papillion to thrive as a popular site to purchase or lease a home.
