This is fun for the kids to use the big slides as well as couples to relax along the river walk. I was there at dusk and it was pretty sketchy. There are homeless people along the water and while they didn't ask for money, they were smoking pot and asked to use my husbands phone- just not a great... More

The big slide is one of the things I tell EVERYONE who is going to Omaha to go see. AND BRING WAX PAPER OR NEWSPAPER!!! Trust me!!!. Walk over to the heartland of America park for a boatride around the fountain. Fun!

This is a beautiful area Omaha, great job! Love the walkways over the water and under bridges. The children love the slides and the ducks, geese, swans. There are boats for a nice ride around the lake. The fountain is spectacular!!

This "mall" is a park like the mall in Washington DC. That is, it's a long, narrow, block or so width greenspace in downtown where you can play Frisbee, have a picnic, etc. There is a set of slides even adults can use which is one of the more fun things in the park. A small amount of additional play... More

This is a very nice & relaxing area to just wander around and look at while visiting the downtown area. I prefer walking here in the evening.

I was in Omaha for 3 days on business and our building is right across the street from the mall. It should be nice but it is about 25 -30 feet below grade (street level) - the perfect place for homeless people and druggies to hang out and do their thang. I would not recommend walking down here alone if... More

The kids are 13, 9 and 6 and loved it. Was just stopping for a break from driving cross country and ended up staying for an hour and a half and had to make them leave. Begged to stop on the way back. Park was kind of dirty but kids didn't care. Be sure to take wax paper or some... More

Checked out the giant slides and the kids had fun. These are high school and college kids. Still had a great time for an hour or so.

The mall has great potential to be a gem in the city. Unfortunately, during our visit the abundance of trash and litter distracted from all the mall/park had to offer. The little ones did enjoy the slides. Be sure to take cardboard or an old tshirt to use on the slide.
