I remember going down the slides when they were first installed. The Gene Leahy Mall has been through. A lot of changes over the years. I especially like the water features. Then during Christmas time all the lights.

Nice to have green space for a leisurely walk after lunch or dinner. Several blocks long and sunken from the street level, a nice attraction for downtown Omaha.

Great place to take the kids after a walk in the Old Market. They will love the slides. It is a part of Heartland of American Park.

Its a great 'secret' trill for kids and adult. Just bring your own cardboard or canvas to slide it with for a smoother ride down.

I grew up going to these slides. My parents used to bring us downtown to slide on wax paper and we had a blast. What a great time! Fun for adults, too :)
