Beautiful fountain. It goes so high! a bit far in the water that you can't get great pictures of it but a nice view no matter what. The park itself don't have much to do, but it... read more

Wide open spaces, beautiful lake and fountain, FUN all around! When you get tired, wander over to Old Market!

Beautiful fountain. It goes so high! a bit far in the water that you can't get great pictures of it but a nice view no matter what. The park itself don't have much to do, but it is very worth taking a walk. Very clean, they just need bathrooms and maybe some place to buy food.

After a couple years of some decline, the park seems to be fixed up and well maintained in 2015. We enjoyed walking around the entire lake as a nice paved path circles the lake. The most fun activity for me is hanging out with about 50 geese and watching the ducks jump into the water. During the evening, the lights... More

This is a great little park with some amazing fountains and water features. It's in great shape, looks well maintained, lots of art features and walking paths. But, there are a lot of homeless people who camp here.

We had just finished walking the Kerry Pedestrian Bridge and having lunch at the Storz Trophy Room, so we wanted to walk off some of our excess. We started walking down the path, over a covered bridge, and then we came to this wonderful park we weren't expecting. There are a few memorial statues, a wonderful lake with a beautiful... More

Great for pictures. Not a ton of green space, but beautiful man-made lake and tall fountain. Sidewalk doesn't go all the way around, which can be annoying, but the path is very nice and well maintained.

Beautiful scenery at Heartland of America Park. We simply strolled there from Old Market, after having a delicious dinner at Spaghetti Works. There is a fountain lighting, but we didn't stay late enough to view (at dusk). We saw gondolas on the lake, but did not look into details. There was a wedding party there, on the grounds, when we...

Beautiful park with awesome trail. The fountains are awesome and great to visit at dusk. Make sure you walk the trail and bring some money for a gondola ride around the fountain. Just make sure you use the restroom before you go, they had 2 port a potties but the were vere disgusting. Would have gave it a 5 star... More

This is a great place for a relaxing stroll. There is a fountain in the middle and flat sidewalks for a nice walk. There are stairs so for those with mobility issues, you may not be able to make a complete loop. There is a great statue of a paratrooper from the 82nd All American Airborne Unit on the path...
