Heartland of America Park
Take a walk along the riverfront in this 31-acre park. Conveniently located in downtown Omaha, visitors will enjoy the breathtaking beauty of a lake and two fountains. The more modern, computerized Heartland of America fountain shoots water 300 feet into the air and features a colorful nighttime light show. A ride on the General Marion tour boat proves interesting, as well as fun. Live concerts add to the relaxed atmosphere on Friday nights in June, July and August. Admission is free.
I'm writing to see if anybody has had a wedding in the Heartland of America Park or Louis and Clark Landing. Also, would Conagra allow a wedding at the gazebo-type entrance to its front door? It's so lovely and quiet there.
Absolutely gorgeous. And the geese. My one year old LOVED the stroller ride and the walk in the grassy hillsides. She also loves the geese. We will be sure to take bread next time. I'm so grateful to find such a place in a city that is new to our family. Taking time to stop and pray for all of those who serve our country, after looking at and reading all of the memorials seemed like a perfect way to end a perfect day. Thanks Omaha, for making us feel at home :)
I enjoy visiting the conagra fountain and I intend, one day, to skinny dip therein. Any pertinent information (depth, legality, etc) would be much appreciated. as for reviewing the area,
I love the fountain and spend a good amount of time there
hot summer nights the water hits your face and
the breeze is cooling and it is beautiful
it is america.
It was pretty, nice walk after dinner but nothing exciting for our almost three year old son. He did enjoy looking at the water though. If the boat ride wasn't $3.00 each, I may have gotten my cheap husband & son on and that would have been fun! Would have liked to have stayed for the light show, but after a full day at the zoo, it would have been too late to keep our son out.
I like Heartland of America park because it is never very crowded and it is always peaceful. You can take a gondola ride if you wish which is kind of fun. The park is nothing glamorous, but it is a beautiful area.
Check out their massive carp too- you can sometimes see them swimming near the top of the water and they are ginormous!!!
We walked down and watched the light /water show one night after dinner downtown. It was so beautiful and romantic. We were not the only couple trying to cash in on the romance factor either. My only concern was that the path to get to the water is not that great lite and it was at night. Doesn't matter if you are in Omaha...safety should always be a factor for a town wanting visitors to feel safe. I would like to go back during the day and take the boat ride.
Wonderful peaceful place, we were there during the week, on a wednesday and except for a few other couples and a few joggers we were quite alone. So pretty and green and peaceful!!! What a wonderful walk we had.!
Love to go back to have a boat ride and the lights at night.
I love the fountains and the boat rides, the abstract and modern art, even the graffiti looks pretty here! Beautiful views and places to lay back to read a book, or sit down and have a picnic. Fun for kids and pets with walking trails and slides. Occasional spot for outdoor events and fireworks. The only downside is that is usually smells fishy, maybe it's from the water. Have fun!
