Neat spot next to Pioneer Park

I saw the gravestones while near Pioneer Park. It was a peaceful walk through the cemetery. I enjoyed reading the headstones. Nice area.

This is an open "green-space" where you can stroll beneath the trees just behind the Convention Center, next to Confederate war memorial and near the cattle drive sculpture. There are stones from this and other area cemeteries that dates to the early to mid 1800's. Many stones are hard to read, but there are also many monuments that tell interesting... More

Adjacent to Pioneer Plaza and the Cattle Drive Sculpture a couple of blocks south of downtown Dallas, its worth a few minutes to visit to see the names, dates and pay respects to some of the pioneers who founded the area.

A great site for all ages! The park has a little waterfall, rocks to climb, room to walk and is a great photo spot.

We had to pass this daily while walking to the Kay Bailey center for WWE wrestlemania. To see the history and the dates on the stones was pretty breathtaking. There were several large monuments of the Confederate stuff as well. its a nice walk just be careful not to walk on or over the stones.

Many of Dallas' forefathers and mothers were laid to rest here between the Pioneer Plaza and Cattle Drive Park and the Dallas Confederate War Memorial and Convention Center. The view of the Dallas skyline to the north is spectacular with the architectural wonder of Dallas City Hall just blocks away to the east. A perfect place to stop and see... More

Interesting Walk back through the early settlers of Dallas along with a Confederate Monument. In the Spring and Fall this would be a nice walk. In the Summer, this was much too hot with little shade.

A cemetery this old and of historic significance should be better kept. Amazing stories from the pioneers illustrated here. Also, beware of fire ants.

The cemetery is adjacent to the Dallas Cattle Drive sculptures. The graves are from the 1800s and seem to be of the original Dallas settlers. The monument to Confederate veterans is here too. My favorite tombstone was one of an angel. It was quite beautiful with the trees in the background. The saddest site was the family that buried 10... More
