“Spend a few hours here feeding the ducks and enjoying the water”
Reviewed 13 October 2013

My wife and I spent a few hours here taking pictures, feeding the ducks (many, many ducks and swans), and enjoying the waterfront and impressive fountains. I was in town for business but my wife was with me, and before lunch on our last day we walked the grounds and enjoyed the outdoors. This is a free, clean, large park with beautiful flowers and many places to take scenic pictures. If you have a few hours before heading to the airport, or just need a place to relax, this park is perfect.

“A great midlands expeience.”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

What could top off an evening of great food in a great city better that a boat ride around a lovely, peaceful fountain? A gem on the riverfront that no one should miss. Even the French foreign exchange student we brought here thought it was nice (though, of course, not as nice as France)!

“Beautiful Park”
Reviewed 13 September 2013

We were just in Omaha over the Labor Day Weekend. We enjoyed visiting this park. We loved the fountain, the waterfall, the ducks and swans, the flowers and the quiet in the park. It was also beautiful to see the fountain lit up at night.

“Wonderful stroll”
Reviewed 2 September 2013

The fountain and waterfalls make for an enjoyable stroll among the trees, flowers and sculptures. Remembering the heros of our past is a theme in one corner of this downtown reprive.

“Lovely Little Place...”
Reviewed 7 August 2013

This was a great little park; a nice place for an afternoon stroll. The beautiful fountain, the swans and ducks and the gondolas all added to a calm and soothing ambience of the park! It's always great to discover relaxing, pretty places hidden just outside or right in the middle of a busy city!
