This park is very pleasurable to stroll or find a seating area to relax, feed the geese and ducks, admire a sunset, or eat some take-out food you bought elsewhere. In warmer weather a nice large fountain is spouting. Worth a visit when exploring Omaha's Old Market area.

Went to view the newly installed Marine Corps seal. The entire park is impressive and well done...good for a walk with family. The airborne statue of a WWII paratrooper is especially impressive.

Visited multiple times and truly wonder why there are not more visitors there. Always clean. Nice walking areas. Swans and other water fowl are amusing. Could use more, nice restrooms. Plenty of parking.

This park has a great trail around a lake with a giant fountain in the warmer months. The paved trail is scenic and generally well-maintained, making it nice for a walk or a run with plenty of benches and grass for places to relax. There is also a couple of paths to platforms providing a scenic overlook of the Missouri... More

We stopped here for about an hour or so walking around the water and enjoying the scenery. Nice and inviting place to sit and just enjoy being outside.

Visit this place at dark and be amazed by the colorful 300-foot high water fountain. There is a walkway all around the lake and benches to boot. Pick a bench and watch the fountain show. Beware, though, the Con-Agra portion of the walk around the lake locks up at 9pm.

This area has a lot to offer in the way of natural beauty and art. You can walk a much or little as you want. The area needs to be cleaned up as there was a lot of visible trash in the area. The lake are has a fantastic water sculpture and boats to ride, but once again, the area... More

The park is beautiful. The fountain is wonderful. The gondola ride is cheap. It was hard to get the driver of the gondola to talk.
