The mall has been redone to make your time even better. The sides are a highlight. The spead that can be obtained is incredible. Use wax paper or a paper garbage bag to increase your speed. Years ago they had to add an extension at the base so that injuries were minimized. I have split my pants on multiple occasions... More

Probably the best views of the skyline are from this park. A long waterway runs down the center of this park from the west end to where the park connects with Heartland of America Park. My favorite walk is through this park, to heartland park's north end, which connects to the riverfront and on to the popular pedestrian bridge. Hint:... More

Right in the Old Market area with great restaurants and fun shops, the playground at Gene Leahy Mall is beautiful and a terrific playground for kids to blow off energetic steam.

Possibly the best free thing to do in Omaha. Make sure to take some wax paper to slide on if you want to go super fast. Be careful if going on a very sunny day as the slides are metal and they will burn you. Also this attraction does flood anytime Omaha gets a heavy rain.

I can't hide the fact that I work right next to the Gene Leahy Mall, so for me it's a welcome break from the dull drums at work to get outside and walk around a bit. Which is wonderful that I can do so while near work. I love to walk around the mall to take in the view of... More

Nicely kept park near the old market. Great for people watching, jogging, or letting your children of all ages try the slides.

This is a great park in downtown omaha. If you have kids you have to go to the slide. I was there for business, but tried out the slide as it is about 50 feet long. Good spot if you're looking to take a walk.
