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...

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.
