A beautiful relaxing park on the riverfront. Accessable if you are staying in a downtown hotel or a destination for spending an afternoon if you live in other parts of the city.

This park was one of the popular attraction in Omaha. We visited this park by September month with our guest. They recently renovated the place and the laser light show was there. It is a large park, very clean and not much crowded. We had a nice walk around the big fountain and took lots of snaps. Kids enjoy to feed lots of geese & swans.

The lake has a tour boat and Gondola cruise. Groupon has deals for Gondola ride frequently & do not forget to do reservation. You need not to do reservation for boat ride & just walk-in. The night view of fountain with laser light and Omaha skyline are very pretty. Don't miss to watch it. Good place for a picnic with family/friends.

The pond can stink. The geese and ducks enjoy leaving "presents" on the path so watch your step. I recommend that you go to the board walk (river side) instead.

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.

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)!
