This is definitely a great place to walk through constantly when staying in downtown Omaha. A nice stream with lots of nice fountains, bridges and trails.

My children love this slide! also, a few times, I brung snack and a blanket and we had a picnic right there on the cement while they played. didn't have to worry about birds or many bugs since we weren't in the grass.

Be aware lots of people use this as a restroom late at night & I'm not sure how often it gets cleaned, make sure you wash your hands.

The Big Slides are well known to all Omaha adults and children alike. You can sit and enjoy, or you can ride the slide!!! Make sure to bring some wax paper so you can really get going! A nice, clean and safe environment for everyone.

The two slides at this mall/park area were a hit with two of the adults and two of the children in our five-person party. Anyone staying near the downtown area with kids must check this out!

Wax paper takes the slide to the next level and prohibits black marks on the clothing. If it’s going to be listed as an area attraction it should be named accordingly, it isn’t a mall, potential tourists may be largely Disappointed with the lack of...More

I visited on a cold, rainy day, but that didn’t stop me from sliding! I was the only person around which made the slide that much more enjoyable. The rain/plastic bag combo helped launch me down at a crazy fast speed. My first landing was...More
