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...

By chance we called in at the visitor centre and a gentleman there pointed us in the direction of this park. We circumnavigated the lake watching the centrepiece fountain shoot water 300 feet into the air every two minutes. The bronze sculptures were magnificent especially the World War II paratrooper exiting the plane. A fitting war memorial.

I took a walk around this park which is fronted on by the Con Agra Corporate headquarters. What an ideal place to jog or walk and have coffee and lunch breaks on if you work there. The walk with the fountain is wonderful. Parking is harder than it seems as I thought the company "private" parking was public from the... More

Beautiful park with lots of things to see. Bring bread and feed the ducks and geese and fish. They have a boat ride and it's so romantic. I didn't give it a perfect review because there is a lot of garbage every where and some graffiti that takes a way from the beauty. But it's totally safe. Enjoy

This is a great place to walk, run or sit and enjoy the surrounding flowers and beautiful lawns. The fountain is beautiful especially at night with the lights.

Enjoyed the food and entertainment at the Taste of Omaha festival. Some food ran out, but the gyro's were great. The Taxi Driver was playing - outstanding cover band - oh and my son is the drummer. http://www.visitomaha.com/listings/Heartland-of-America-Park-and-Fountain/56947/0/#.VXC7Ac9VhHw

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.
