Beautiful place for stroll

Serene, quiet walkway around a beautiful lake with fountains. Boat rides available. There are benches to sit at and relax while taking in the wildlife at the lake.

This place is at the Omaha downtown, great place to walk around the river. We had been to this place in the evening and the view was so awesome with flowers and ducks enjoying the spring. They even have boat ride facility with small charges to go around the lake. There are other places near the park, Bob Kerrey bridge... More

Took the full loop around the lake on a beautiful sunny day. The fountain is spectacular. Great exercise and sights along the Missouri River.

A great green space in the middle of the big city. Nice walking paths, ducks and geese on the lake, waterfall, boat rides for the kids. Picnic tables and places to sit in the shade. Lots of people with their families just taking a walk. Kind of surprised that this was so nice.

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
