  • The water is yucky, lots of garbage floating around, homelss folks everywhere but it's ok for a stroll. 
  • Heartland is a great little park to take an after dinner walk or to burn off a few calories while taking in downtown Omaha. Figure in 45-60 min to walk around the lake. Enjoy the fountain when it's ru...  more »
  • Very packed for fireworks on NYE. We ended up parking in Century Link Arena's parking lots. Good show of fireworks and weather was not too cold

  • Spent about two hours there. Great place for a walk. Saw plenty of people walking (in case you're concerned with homeless people). Kids fed the geese. Part of it was under construction
  • Part of it is currently under construction but the rest of it is still very nice and beautiful. I spent several hours with my roommate here and we enjoyed our time playing Pokemon Go with the hundreds of other people there. Heck, some guy grilled hot dogs and gave them to us! Definitely check it out at night, too! You get a great view of the fountain from most positions around the lake and it is magnificent. It also shoots very high.
  • Great shade from trees in a big enough space to play Frisbee or volleyball or soccer. It's green and isolated from traffic. They need to open up restrooms though. The portable potties were disgusting. Or no restrooms at all as we didn't have any years ago.
  • I love the park and how close it is to the Old Market and the Pedistrian Bridge. I love the little garden that they have there once going in and the gondola rides that they do as well. I only wish people would be courteous of others and pick up after themselves. Keep Omaha clean and beautiful!
  • This is an urban park in the heart of downtown. It has almost everything that's needed. Wide Open Spaces, the largest free flowing fountain in North America, beautiful scenery and a walking path around the lake. One criticism is that there are no functioning bathrooms at this point. There are bathrooms on the far north end of the park however, the bathrooms have been blocked off with only porta potties to be used. This is been that way for several years and has not changed. I did not know whether they have decided that it is a security risk because of homeless people or something too costly that they don't want a fix. This is a big deficiency.
