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.

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.
