Nice place for children and parents to meet and watch the children play. Lots of space for them to move around. Children can see the wildlife of the geese and watch the ducklings follow their parents around. Parets, babysitters, grandparents or anyone can gain access with or without a wheelchair.

Nice place to walk except in the winter. Christmas time you bundle up, bring the thermos of hot chocolate and admire the frozen lake and the lights. Summertime evenings are cool and relaxing. Hopefully they will add some attractions closer to the walk for snacks and beverages.

While visiting The Old Market in downtown Omaha, be sure to take in the Gene Leahy Mall. Now don't be confused...it is not a mall, like a shopping mall...instead, it is a mall like you think of the Mall in Washington D.C. Of course, it is not as large, and not surrounded by historical buildings of great magnitude...but rather it... More

Several of our grandchildren have grown up and have continued to go down to the Big Slide with their friends and even girl friendos and boy friends. Now we have another set of young grandchildren and have... More

This place is especially wonderful during the spring and christmas time frames. During the christmas time, you get to see a wonderful decor of lights on all of the trees and a creek that freezes over nicely. During the spring there is a very nice feel to the place, that feels like it's out of a back woods creek in... More

The slides here were so much fun, but I couldn't believe how many people were here in the middle of a weekday. Our kids are younger and a lot of older kids were running around without any concern for the little ones. It is fun and worth a stop, but keep little ones close or they may get plowed over.

Walking arond Gene Leahy Mall you will come across two giant metal slides. You will probably think that they are there for kids. Don't hesitate and find a piece of cardboard or better yet, wax paper and be ready to have a blast. These are fast slides so be safe and watch out for others. The lake is also nice... More

Go down the big slides, feed the geese or swans, play in the snow, enjoy the Winter Lights Festival after Thanksgiving... there is much to do year round at Gene Leahy Mall.
