Center of the hustle and bustle

Beautiful park where you can sit, people watch, enjoy the water views then pretend your a kid and take a quick ride down the slide.

Never met anyone who did not love the slides, or walk around enjoying the view-especially around Christmas with all of the lights. Con Agra fountain is a short walk, great restaurants, and good family time for not a lot of money!

This place is fantastic for the young at heart. A ride down the slide is a must but be sure to bring your own wax paper because the faster you go the farther you fly. People watching, feeding the birds, and maybe a homeless person or two, holding hands and reminiscing, even a roll down the hill will bring back... More

We have always enjoyed this fast fun slide, after a bite to eat for lunch at Matsu Sushi just across the street. Bring waxed paper and a box to increase your speed down the slide. Have fun and be safe.

If you have small children that are less excited than the grown-ups about visiting the Old Market, take them over here for awhile! The park is about two blocks from the center of the Old Market. It has several-story slides built into a hill that will make your kids love to come downtown. Kids also enjoy the ducks and geese... More

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 place is so great I remember the slides from when I was a kid! We were walking along the park when we came across the giant slides - wait - I was here when I was a kid! We (well, I had to, my preggers wife decided to sit this one out) just on and go for a ride.... More

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!!
