Heartland of America Park

Heartland of America Park (https://treeserviceomahane.com/) is a public park situated at 800 Douglas Street in downtown Omaha, Nebraska. The 31-acre (130,000 m2) park is situated between Interstate 80 and the Missouri River, and is adjacent to Gene Leahy Shopping Center and the Old Market and connects to Lewis & Clark Landing.

Where the park sits has been the site of expedition, growth and now, recreation. Lewis and Clark supposedly found conspicuous earthen mounds when they checked out the area in 1804. Historians hypothesize the mounds might have been natural or the remains of an Otoe village. Opened in 1990, the park was built on recovered after the questionable demolition of the Jobbers Canyon Historic District. The location, filled with storage facilities dating to the 1870s, was essential to the development and development of Omaha.

In addition to the lake the park includes a paved walking trail surrounding location. There are three water fountains, consisting of a large, modern-day, $1.5 million electronic fountain that predicts water 300 feet (91 m) into the air and includes a nighttime light show. The lake has a trip boat named the General Marion, with trips available in the summer season, and resident swans called Romeo and Juliet in honor of the play. There is also a monument to the 1898 Trans-Mississippi Exposition, and the late 1800s Water supply Fountain, as soon as located at the Webster Station, a railroad depot in North Omaha. The park is the site of the yearly Taste of Omaha event.

ConAgra Foods is located on the south end of the lake, and just recently, after initially cutting off access to the south end of the park, ConAgra opened the walking path all the way around the lake. If you remain on the course around the lake, and cut through below the structural awning on the northwest side of the lake, the overall girth is.96 miles.
