What an amazing place. Beautiful and easy parking. We went for a boat ride in the lake with the fountains for $3 a person. It was so pretty. We gladly accept all types of people...however, if you are scared of homeless or random people coming to you and talkin to you, you might not go in the evening. We met... More

This is I guess Omaha's version of Central Park in puts the green and fresh air into the downtown area.

This is a great spot for a good run or walk. It is about a mile around the pond. There are lots of geese and ducks out on the water and around the walking path. There is also a fountain that looks really cool at night. They offer boat and gondola rides on certain nights for a small fee.

We went to see the fountains here at night. It was absolutely beautiful. Of all the fountain/water displays that we have been to this certainly ranks up there. It was just gorgeous. The night we went had beautiful weather. We parked in a slightly frightening area (I'm fairly certain we parked in the main park lot). Thank goodness we weren't... More

We enjoyed a leisurely stroll along the lake watching the fountain, but the wind was blowing and even across the lake we got wet. Good thing is was hot!

We stopped in here after seeing other reviews. Overall nice park, just wish the gondolas were going during our visit (they were closed due to vandalization repairs, sad!) There are lots of paths to walk, just watch out for geese droppings! We came back at dark to watch the fountain change colors at night.. very relaxing!

This walkable park is perfect place for a family outing. Wide walking path circumnavigates a large lagoon with a geyser-like fountain, that according to my grandson 'shoots water like a volcano!" Lots of geese and you might even spy a turtle ! In the summer there are gondola rides on the weekend.

A beautiful relaxing park on the riverfront. Accessable if you are staying in a downtown hotel or a destination for spending an afternoon if you live in other parts of the city.

This park was one of the popular attraction in Omaha. We visited this park by September month with our guest. They recently renovated the place and the laser light show was there. It is a large park, very clean and not much crowded. We had a nice walk around the big fountain and took lots of snaps. Kids enjoy to... More

The pond can stink. The geese and ducks enjoy leaving "presents" on the path so watch your step. I recommend that you go to the board walk (river side) instead.
