These big slides are a blast!! Made us feel like kids again and man can you go fast. Take a trip downtown to ride on the slides, you won't be disappointed!

At least stop by to experience the slides- simply a great time for both children and adults! My children's (ages 3,12&15) favorite spot in Omaha as well as mine! The area was under construction but the slides were still open.

We ventured through the mall on our way to the Old Market. There were some great pieces of public art to view on our way through and the whole area was designed very well. I wouldn’t put it to the top of any list, but if you are in the neighborhood it is worth a walk through.

It was my girlfriends first trip to Omaha and I was showing her around the old market area and the GL mall. When I lived in Omaha there were a lot of homeless people harrassing pedestrians. Back then, we never walked near the mall. It was really clean too and I saw several people and families riding the slide. Good... More

I was visiting from out of town and was walking around downtown Omaha and the park is under construction. Major updates are being made and hopefully things will look nicer!

The concept was amazing but the execution was a disaster. Tends to be filthy and unkept. You would think that the businesses in the area and the Chamber of Commerce would know better

Worth the time to walk through there, even in the winter. I love the Christmastime when it is all lit up. Beautiful.

If you in the Old Market area, a walk through the Gene Leahy Mall is a must. Beautiful lake and a peaceful atmosphere in the busy hustle of downtown Omaha. Giant slide for the kids (and teens even)to enjoy.

The Gene Leahy Mall in downtown Omaha, NE is a great place to spend an afternoon just relaxing, reading a book, watching the people or the ducks on the lake, and just enjoying an afternoon or a lunch hour.

Sometimes the slides at the Gene Leahy Mall feel just like sesame street. There are a ton of people with wax paper taking turns whipping down the slides. So much fun and free!
