We spent the night in the area on our way back to Wisconsin and stopped here after spotting the huge fountain from the pedestrian bridge up the river. Figured it would be a good place to wander a bit before a long day in the car. It is, in fact, a beautiful park... well manicured, nice water features (side note:... More

We went for a walk in this park just to stretch after driving most of the day. We enjoyed the different statues and foliage displayed through out the park. The walking trails are easy to enjoy, and the park was clean and well kept. Even though it was getting toward sun down, we felt safe and saw many families with... More

This is a lovely park to visit. The entire area is clean as a whistle and well manicured. They did have 2 portable toilets on site. The big fountain is a delight to watch. There are some interesting war memorials to see here. The bronze statues are real looking. You also get to walk along the river and there is... More

My group of 14 (7 Master Gardeners and spouses) spent over an hour walking around the lake, while examining and photographing the flora and fauna. It was an extremely hot and humid day, yet we enjoyed it immensely. Some of the highlights included the swans (and one egg in what we viewed as a flower bed, but they must have... More

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!
