Lewis and Clark Landing is a public park located at 515 North Riverfront Drive in Downtown Omaha, Nebraska. This 23acre park is situated along the eight-foot-tall (2.4 m) river walk of the Missouri River just north of U.S. Interstate 480.
Lewis and Clark Landing is the original landing site of the 1804 Lewis and Clark Expedition. The Lewis and Clark Expedition took place from 1804 to 1806. The purpose of the expedition was to explore the land which the United States had purchased from France through the Louisiana Purchase in 1803. Lewis and Clark Landing now sits on property formerly owned by ASARCO, which maintained a lead refinery there that closed in 1997. HDR Inc. won an award from the United States Environmental Protection Agency for their work on remediation of the Lewis and Clark Landing.

  • stop and see this great national park exhibit. all free. walk across the foot bridge to iowa. stand in two states at the same time at the center of the bridge. stop will take about an hour.  more »
  • We came across it almost by chance on this site that offers a page of THE history and culture of the United States, presenting in the visitor center the feat of explorers Lewis and Clark in their ascent of the Missouri River. The walk on the bridge and on the riverfront is also beautiful.

  • So, much fun and educational. I love history and beautiful place to take pictures outside. Went up to the Bob Kerry Bridge and ended up renting a scooter for the first time. Went every where on it. It was an epic day.
  • Went there for an outdoor music festival. Great setting, right by river, bridge lit in background. It was great. Not enough parking but at least there was free parking.
