Pilger Nebraska is a resilient community and has much to offer visitors and people who live there.

Pilger Swimming Pool

Pilger’s municipal pool which opened Memorial Day 2008, replaced our old pool which had been in operation since 1956.  The pool is open from Memorial Day to mid-August – closes the night before Wisner-Pilger School classes begin.  Public swimming lessons are held the first two full weeks in July.  Private swimming lessons can be scheduled through the swimming pool manager.  Regular pool hours are 1:30 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. & 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.  Special hours occur during Pilger Days

Pilger Park is located next to Highway 15.  The Park houses a grassed infield baseball field with grand stand & concession stand, shaded picnic tables, restrooms, playground equipment, and a four pad camper unit.
