What a nice park. The walking paths are perfect, and the fountains are great. This is well worth a visit, especially if you are visiting the nearby Bob Kerrey pedestrian bridge or the Old Market area.

Nice place to visit while in Omaha. Ducks and swans are there most of the time. Also check Vegas’ Bellagio style water fountain - light only on after sunset. Parking is limited but usually not a lot of visitors to the park.

What a great park. Nice tribute to those who served our country. Nice water features including the water fall "stairs" and fountain. The Lewis & Clark bridge connects to the pedestrian bridge area which makes a nice long walk

The park was very clean and tidy. Everyone we passed was very friendly. It was a hot day on our long walk so be sure to bring water. The art pieces here were awesome to see.

Sure was! Pretty, that is. Lots of lights. Also water! Great winding trails. Did it feel like the heartland of America? Probably! My name is Nancy.

I loved how quiet it was for being in town. The bridges were beautiful, and the lake was absolutely stunning. Very well taken care of, and gorgeous falls.
