Most sculpture parks are intended for adults. This one is decidedly exciting for kids. The sheer scale and artistic merit with its dozens of bronze sculptures of cowboys and steers is amazing. You can spend a couple of hours here certainly, and get many fine photographs to take home in the process. And pack a picnic.

This unique art setting is in Downtown Dallas in the shadow of the Dallas Convention Center and just off the Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) line is a must stop in Downtown Dallas. This replica of a Cattle Drive is great for anyone from families to business people. It will take you back to those days of yesteryear. The unique... More

An excllent monument to the cattle rush and a nice parkette, but was disappointed with how poorly kept the ancient cemetery is.

This is possibly one of the best group of animal sculptures in a city I have ever seen. Evocative of the old west. The only downside was the number of adults and children climbing on the statues to have their photos taken. There is a great need to have security in attendance if only to stop this from occurring. Signs... More

Not really in the very center of the city but definitely worth visiting. Lots of sculptures with cattle and cowboys just to get a taste how the pioneers may have lived like. You can walk among sculptures to get a better view.

Stumbled upon this by chance when walking through Dallas. It is stunning and we enjoyed walking about and taking pictures for 20 minutes.

This is just a great sculpture, you never see bronze statues on this scale, and you can walk among them. Kids love it too.

When I think of Texas, I think of longhorn cattle, horses and cowboys. The sculptures on the plaza embody so many of the elements that make Texas so social to me. Worth a look around.

Easy close and free parking. Nice clean park with life sized cattle drive including longhorns and cowboys on horseback in bronze. It's very impressive and has the cattle going through an actual stream you can cross on boulders. It's next to a cemetery of some early Dallas settlers. If you're downtown, it's a great reminder of what Texas used to... More
