“Scenic walk, great Christmas lights...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013

We love walking at the Heartland of America Park. It is just beautiful. Omaha would definitely not be the same without it. During the holidays it is all lit up with white Christmas lights and during the summer there tends to be ducks and a few swans to feed.

“Peaceful....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013 via mobile

A nice place to go for a walk, large enough area to walk. There are tons of geese there to feed however they are somewhat aggressive toward eachother, more or less because we were feeding them and with so many there, food is prob. scarce. Another thing is there is tons of 'poo' from the geese. The best time to go is at nite. They have gondola rides and the fountain is lit up and changes colors which is pretty. Fun place for couples and kids.

“Love the fountain”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2013

I've been to this park many times. I love it most when the fountain is going off. Lots of birds to see. You can even take a boat ride. A very nice scenic park for our steadily improving downtown area.

“Nice area for a refreshing stroll”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013

Visited this park to kill some time before flying out of Eppley Airfield. Not a lot of people when we went, so was calm and peaceful. A nice place to have a picnic and feed the birds. Even a good place to walk dogs.

“Nice walk, including views of downtown and right up to the river!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2012

This is a nice little park, with fountains and many rolling pathways. You can even walk onto a viewing platform overlooking the river. Public toilets available, but yuk.

The park is more worthwhile if you visit during a local festival or holiday event. Otherwise it's good for a walk in the fresh air.

Paths are connected over to the north by the convention center and restaurants, and also connected west to Old Market. Or bring a picnic basket and relax on your own blanket.
