  • Went to the first day of reopening and it was so much more than I expected. Lots of green space, seating, sculptures, and my favorite part: an awesome play area for kiddos of all ages. The playground had a rock climbing wall and lots of other climbing and balance activities. I didn't get to explore all if it because my kiddo was glued to the play area. We enjoyed our time and will definitely be back!
  • The newly redeveloped “Gene Leahy Mall” is the first of three new parks that are part of the “The Riverfront” redevelopment project. The redeveloped park is now a massive and incredible community space that makes Omaha feel like an actual destination city. The park features a multitude of new and exciting things to do, see, and explore. Most notable is the Arches Playground adjacent to the Historic Arch which features a multi-level adventure play space with a bouldering wall, slides, below ground play area, obstacle course style equipment, and endless fun for kids of all ages. Additionally the park includes a cascading water area that acts like a modern splash pad, swing patio benches, a hammock area, fire pits, sculpture garden, ping pong tables, and a massive amphitheater for outdoor events. The old slides of Gene Leahy mall were preserved and a new slide and a grass hill that kids have found is great for rolling down (and maybe sledding in the winter) is also present. This park is highly impressive and on par with parks I have visited in places like San Francisco, Chicago, or Los Angeles..
