Description
Right in the heart of downtown Omaha, Nebraska, lies a 31 acre park full of nature, beauty and activities for everyone. The Heartland of America Park officially opened in 1990, but it has a long and ... Read more
interesting history dating back to the Old West. Before the park was created, it housed the Jobbers Canyon Historic District. The demolition of this district marks the nation’s largest historic district lost to the National Register. In 1804, Louis and Clark reported odd earthen mounds as they traveled through. Today the park encompasses a lake with boat rides, miles of paved walking trails and proudly exhibits the world’s second tallest computerized water fountain that shoots water 300 feet into the air. Come and see Omaha at its best in the Heartland of America Park.

Beautiful outdoor green space in downtown Omaha. Lake with a fountain that lights up at night, sidewalk for walking around the lake. Across the street from the Old Market.

Beautiful park with lots of grassy areas, a man-made waterfall along some stairs going down to the lake area, side walk/walking path along the lake, gondola ride. There is a fountain in the park as well which fairly frequently will spurt high into the air.

Fountains and canals right on the river, abutting downtown Omaha. Plenty of places to sit and relax.
