Downtown Omaha park closing for project construction

Officials say Heartland of America Park in downtown Omaha will close Monday for construction. The Omaha World-Herald reports that the nearly $300 million transformation of three downtown parks is moving east from Gene Leahy Mall. The park will reopen once construction is complete in 2023. A portion that leads to the Conagra campus will remain open. Officials don’t expect to close streets for this step in the big project.
