The park that bears his name carries on that legacy in North Platte.
Amusement park rides, exotic animals, and an ice cream stand are all part of Cody Park.
The park is an inexpensive way to spend a summer evening out with the family.
Many families say they look forward to the park's opening every summer as it provides affordable one-stop entertainment.
The park remains open until 10 p.m. every night and will remain open through the summer.
