“public park in downtown Omaha”
Heartland of America Park is a public park located at 800 Douglas Street in downtown Omaha, Nebraska, USA. The 31-acre (130,000 m2) park is situated between Interstate 80 and the Missouri River, and is adjacent to Gene Leahy Mall and the Old Market and connects to Lewis & Clark Landing. Along with the lake the park features a paved walking trail encircling area. There are three fountains, including a large, modern, $1.5 million computerized fountain that projects water 300 feet (91 m) into the air and features a nighttime light show. The lake has a tour boat named the General Marion, with rides available in the summertime, and resident swans named Romeo and Juliet in honor of the play. There is also a monument to the 1898 Trans-Mississippi Exposition, and the late 1800s Waterworks Fountain, once located at the Webster Station, a railroad depot in North Omaha. The park is the site of the annual Taste of Omaha event. The headquarters of ConAgra Foods are on the south end of the lake, and recently, after initially cutting off access to the south end of the park, ConAgra opened the walking path all the way around the lake.
