We love ducking. Seriously, there were a TON of ducks here to watch. Ducks and geese and swans. A very picturesque area for a stroll, a picnic, or walking/running/riding your bike.

We decided to take a drive on Easter to Heartland of America Park, we enjoyed watching the fountain, and a family walk. While there is lots of construction going on this place is still full of natural beauty! I would definitely return. The only regret is not bringing eggs to hide for my little one! Check this gem out if... More

Right now the area around it is under construction. This made it very hard to get to. It seemed much larger and more to do on the map. It was a beautiful day and we enjoyed laying out and taking in the sun and fresh air. We could have done that at any park though.

Go during the spring when there are grass and flowers. In the Winter is just drab, dull and gray. The dirt and dust from the city sit on the water and it just doesn't look nice.

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 running.
