Heartland of America Park is a public park located at 800 Douglas Street in downtown Omaha, Nebraska. The 31-acre (130,000 m2) park is situated between Interstate 80 and the Missouri River, and is adjacent to Gene Leahy Mall and the Old Market and connects to Lewis & Clark Landing. Where the park sits has been the site of exploration, expansion and now, recreation. Lewis and Clark reportedly discovered conspicuous earthen mounds when they explored the location in 1804. Historians speculate the mounds may have been natural or the remains of an Otoe village. Opened in 1990, the park was built on recovered after the controversial demolition of the Jobbers Canyon Historic District. The area, filled with warehouses dating to the 1870s, was integral to the growth and development of Omaha.

  • The fountain is absolutely beautiful. The pathways are a really great way to spend time with your loved ones and nature while exercising. It's a great use of tax dollars at work for once. We took a ride on the boat $4 per adult it was great. The Gondola is $25 per couple that's a romantic way to spend time with a loved one(or propose)to the one you love. In the moonlight at the lighted fountain as it puts on it's light show.
  • This location is a remarkable example of its type. If you like places like this then you will definitely love this place. It's got everything you would want from water features to walking paths to that public/private corporate park vibe.
