Just another Mall - nothing special... Not sure why I even ticked it to review. Couple of interesting shops but nothing that made me want to return.

At the very edge of the Old Market. The man-made lake is edged with walking paths. Interesting, artsy benches abound. And a great double slide will delight the kids.

Would have missed this had we not been told at the visitors center. We walked here from old market to let the kids waste some energy. There are two big steel slides in an amphitheater setting. Lots of kids and adults enjoying them. We spent a half hour here. Kids were sliding on pieces of cardboard to increase speed. Dangerous... More

Not sure where these two parks separate but this seems to be the park section for children to enjoy.

It's a good place to stop and waste an hour.- my 5&8 year olds enjoyed the slides (ok, I did too!) The river the runs for the middle of it is quite dirty. Not pleasant to look at. It is near the visitors center and they have lots of other ideas

The Leahy Mall is several blocks long and has multiple aspects to it, so I'll break this into two reviews. First the good. As others have said, the slides are really fun. Bring a strip of cardboard to go even faster! They are in a nice, semi-shaded area with large steps for parents to sit on to watch the kids... More

My last review back in 2013 was not the greatest because they were going through some renovations to the park. Since returning to the park on July 4th weekend, I see that the park has been renovated and is much nicer. The only negative thing that I have to say about this park is that they hire security to push... More

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.
