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.

My wife and I spent a few hours here taking pictures, feeding the ducks (many, many ducks and swans), and enjoying the waterfront and impressive fountains. I was in town for business but my wife was with me, and before lunch on our last day we walked the grounds and enjoyed the outdoors. This is a free, clean, large park... More

What could top off an evening of great food in a great city better that a boat ride around a lovely, peaceful fountain? A gem on the riverfront that no one should miss. Even the French foreign exchange student we brought here thought it was nice (though, of course, not as nice as France)!

We were just in Omaha over the Labor Day Weekend. We enjoyed visiting this park. We loved the fountain, the waterfall, the ducks and swans, the flowers and the quiet in the park. It was also beautiful to see the fountain lit up at night.

The fountain and waterfalls make for an enjoyable stroll among the trees, flowers and sculptures. Remembering the heros of our past is a theme in one corner of this downtown reprive.

This was a great little park; a nice place for an afternoon stroll. The beautiful fountain, the swans and ducks and the gondolas all added to a calm and soothing ambience of the park! It's always great to discover relaxing, pretty places hidden just outside or right in the middle of a busy city!

We enjoyed a nice little stroll through the park. I would really like to see it once construction is finished. All of the water made it seem a little cooler out. I liked the waterfall (and the sound of the waterfall) as well as the geyser. I wish that the gondolas ran during the week; I think that would have... More

We happened upon this park and what a pleasant surprise. The fountains, gardens and gondolas were so picturesque! We enjoyed a walk around the lake. We even happened upon a wedding while we were there! Such an amazing area in the downtown area!
