My husband visit Gene Leahy Mall every time we are in the area for dining or a concert at the Holland. A wonderful place to stroll hand in hand or just sit and watch others enjoying themselves.

The big slides are great fun for every kid, big and small! Don't forget your cardboard or wax paper to slide down on!

The Gene Leahy Mall is beautiful, and has lots of interesting things to look at. There are numerous statues, a pair of tall slides embedded in the hillside, great running path

I heard about these slides so I took my boys to check them out. We had a blast, with a couple of minor bumps along the way. Afterwards we walked around enjoying the view by the fountains. Lots of eatery choices. Definitely a good option...More

This is a fun area and FREE! Big slides for kids, clean and beautiful. We even go there in the winter to have the kids go down the slides in full snow gear. Nice relaxing walk around the grounds.

Alright if you're in the Old Market area you should definitely check this place out. It's a very nice park to walk in and it's overall pretty clean. You should go during the day time because it attracts some roughish people at night. A local...More

Response from Rick M | Reviewed this property |
I believe that the deepest point is 12 feet, but the river walk itself is much shallower than that. The current is basically nonexistent and I have never heard of any problems or accidents in all of the years that it has... More
