Description:

The Downtown Slides, located at Gene Leahy Mall in Omaha, Nebraska, are popular for locals and visitors alike. These giant slides are built into a hillside and offer a unique and exciting way to experience the beautiful park. They were originally built in 1976 as part of the city's bicentennial celebration. They were designed by Gene Leahy, a former mayor of Omaha, and have been a beloved attraction ever since. The slides were recently renovated in 2019 to improve their safety and accessibility.
