Fine park for walking

Walk along the river. Relax and enjoy the spring days. Pleasant way to spend an afternoon. Close to Old Market and lots of restuarants.

They have done a nice job of creating a peaceful place in the heart of Old Town Omaha to commune with nature and feel some of the history that shaped the start of this city. The bridges and water are a perfect get-a-way when you need a break. Plenty of niche restaurants close by.

When we travel to Omaha, we nearly always end up with a walk around the park. The ducks, the fountains, families together on the greens all make for a peaceful Sunday.

I was glad I visited this park even in the winter. Walking by the river is a treat, as is the nearby National Heritage Trail and the pedestrian bridge. Definitely worth a visit.

The park offers a nice walk around the lake and an impressive fountain display but the bridge over the railroad tracks doesn't add any value to the walk or park as the view is unimpressive. For workers at ConAgra, it offers a great place to enjoy lunch or to walk around and get out of the office for a little... More

I had read a lot about the colorful fountain and the experience didn't let me down. The lighting starts around 7:15pm and is marvelous. Sure there are some challenges with geese feces around the walking trail, but all in all it was an awesome visit.. Strongly recommended by anyone around.

OK, I will admit, I LOVE Heartland of America Park. While it’s hardly the best park in the country, I have a soft spot for it. On a sunny day with a blue sky, it is just a wonderful walk. The fountain is spectacular and you get great views of the Omaha skyline. Other reviewers are correct, there is geese... More

Went for a walk around the little lake on a late evening. It was a beautiful night, but slightly windy, which caused the fountain to spray us as we walked by. There is supposed to be a light show, but that night it was only gold. I would go back during the day for a ride on the boats.

We stopped here after seeing the huge fountain. After just getting into the park, we noticed the problem this park has. There are numerous water"foul" that live here, as such they foul everything in their path. This is such a cool park in downtown Omaha but everywhere you step there is feces. Clean it up Omaha and check your shoes... More

The path around the lake is nice and was easily maneuvered with a stroller. The kids loved all the geese, ducks, and swans! If we ever go back, we'll know to bring bread for the birds, and money for the boat ride!
