Gene Leahy Mall is a 9.6 acre park offering terrific views of downtown Omaha. The Mall is encircled by a long pathway that wraps around a large lagoon. There are also waterfalls, a sandy playground, a horseshoe pit, and an amphitheater where outdoor concerts are held in the summer. The real magnets for kids (and adults) are the two giant slides. Be sure to bring waxed paper to enhance the experience (yes, kids sit on waxed paper to speed things up!). The park also features a waterway, landscaped gardens, and a picnic area.
