We went at night, around 830, to see the fountain do its thing. Beautiful with all the light effects,and fun to try and outrun the spray when it shoots super high. We also had a blast hanging out with all the locals who played Pokemon! Must have been 50 people on a beautiful Omaha night. Fun fun fun!

I have lived in Omaha for 5 years but just visited this park for the first time- I've heard of it but didn't really know what or where it was. It is a beautiful small lake, large pond complete with boat rides for hire and a walkway that goes around the water. DO be aware there are NO toilets and... More

Enjoyed a family fun outting watching the water fountain spray up. Got to see the ducks and swans and walk around the gardens. Nice place to take family pictures. Very peaceful.

You can feed the geese, take a little walk and ride the boats or the gondola. Bring your camera and at night the fountain is lit up with different colors!

It was a nice area to walk. Was a little scared walking through some areas, especially with kids. But overall fun and free.

Saw the geyser shooting up from the Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge and had to go see what it was. A short walk brought us to this amazing park. The geyser shoots up from the edge of the lake with smaller water features situated around it. On the other side of the park is a water fall feature. Lots of benches to... More

A very nice place to walk or exercise, sit by the fountain, and just relax. A lovely promenade, a fantastic fountain. There even appears to be a pirate boat or something like that. Great place in the middle of the city, easy to access.

Very peaceful walk around the lake, there is a large colorful water fountain display, in the middle of the late, differently can see it from a distance. The park is in the heart of downtown Omaha. Also there is small boat rides for $3 per person, very relaxing and affordable price. The boat is wood with a motor and brings... More

Maybe it's because I'm not from the midwest, but I found that everywhere I went, there were memorials for all different parts of different wars. This park was probably the most patriotic park I've been to. It was wonderful to see the time dedicated to both the park itself and the memorials that are there- I felt the spirit of... More
