The sheer number of statues is amazing and they are dotted all over the place; every corner you turn the statues continue. The main collection of statues are well positioned and it great to see the different ways in which the past can be remembered...More

The great pioneering spirit is attractively presented in a busy downtown atmosphere to remind us how far we have come! Great history reference.

This is a fairly small park located in downtown Omaha. It features a re-creation of Oregon Trail times with people, oxen, and wagons among other things, using bronze statues. A few trail down the street and around the corner, too. A nice place to visit...More

The sculptures well represent the struggles and the journey taken by early pioneers. Well worth a look, and we should all pause to reflect how lucky we are in modern day society. Here's to the brave men, women, children, and animals who endured and suffered...More

This is a city block of interesting sculptures of days gone by. Wagon Trains and so much more. Won't take long to see it all, but definitely worth the trip.

We were amazed at the scope of this project. The wagon train is larger than life, and filled with great details. This is a wonderful sculpture garden. We really liked the way this continues down the street, with buffalo in and around the buildings, leading...More
