FIRST AVE Trail runs from 16th to 35th St. and connects with other trail networks. The former rail corridor is one block away from W. Broadway, Council Bluffs' main thoroughfare.

The trail features lighting, public spaces, and trail plazas. The plazas include shaded seating, open green spaces, and bicycle parking. Cochran Park along the trail offers more opportunities for recreational fun. The park is undergoing a makeover and will soon be home to a new playground, ball field, pickleball courts, and basketball courts.

FIRST AVE received a Laurels Award from Omaha by Design for Access and Mobility.
