Heartland of America Park is a public park located at 800 Douglas Street in downtown Omaha, Nebraska. It has been closed for renovations since 2019 and will not reopen until 2023. 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.To visit Heartland of America Park and other attractions in Omaha, use our Omaha trip planner.

This area is closed for renovation. The pictures of the future look great, but I believe will not be completed until 2022.

Beautiful new addition to Omaha, and Thank you for all the hard work time and effort for providing such a unique area bringing downtown Omaha to life. Too many reasons why I would recommend not losing out on visiting. Recommended to all ages and gatherings.
Nice for an evening stroll around the lake. Good photo ops as well. Parking could be a challenge, be prepared to pay. Would also be a lovely place to picnic. Lots of seating options or blanket in the grass.
