Enter the park next to the Luminarium. The park is great for all ages. Older kids love climbing to the top of the orange eggs and taking the slide down and there are plenty of options for younger kids to climb and play.

During the summer there are water features to play and splash in. If your kids aren’t into climbing, the sand area has lots of options for digging and creativity.

The area also includes a lakeside amphitheater, bocce courts, firepits, urban beach, and Farnam Pier.

Park highlights:

  • Multiple family restrooms
  • Drinking fountains (operating seasonally)
  • Kids will love splashing and playing in the water features and streams around the park
  • A sandy play area with diggers fosters creativity
  • Swings, huge slides, climbing walls, zip-line, tunnels, and more
  • Free street parking

The Skate Ribbon is at the corner of 8th and Farnam Street and offers year-round skating. You can bring your own skates or rent roller skates or ice skates in the winter. There is also a dog park and more green space to throw a ball, picnic, or relax.

The Heartland of America Park is located next to the Kiewit Luminarium as well as the Bob Pedestrian Bridge.
