We enjoyed a pleasant walk along the waterway at the park. There are places to sit and contemplate the views or your thoughts. Great place to see some ducks and geese enjoying the water and life.

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

A scenic walk around the lake, with fountains, some wildlife, and other water features. It can be challenging to find, but it was free to enjoy, and a nice break from doing touristy things. It is apparently also a popular photography spot, so watch out...More

We were very impressed with the whole riverfront area & walking from the pedestrian bridge along the nice paved trails & elevated boardwalk to the park was so nice. The lovely lake with the geysers of water is so pretty. Then the multi level waterfall...More

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.
