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.

great place to walk --- good giant slide -- and entrance to the heartland of America park which has boat ride and a 300 foot shooting fountain with a lake and a walkway around the lake--also close to the old market's area..

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.

This was a fun free place, don't get confused by the word mall it's just a green space. I thought there would be mall stores around us. This nice park area in downtown Omaha has two giant slides that even us adults went down a few times. The kids where on it endless times. There is also a walking path... More

This place is at the Omaha downtown near the old market. We went for the evening walk, they even have small play place for the kids. Even the teens were enjoying the slides. The lake had few water flows to make the place more beautiful. There is a small bridge to cross the lake to enjoy both sides of the... More

My sister and I are grown adults, but, we love to challenge each other to a race on the adult size slides. It's tradition after all! Fun for all ages, I've seen many kids and other kids at heart enjoy them. The mall itself is ok, the Old Market area as a whole delightful to explore and highly recommended!
