It's great for sculptures, but it's devoid of any Native Americans (unless you count the buffalo). For a variety of reasons this doesn't look like an oversight to me and that is, in itself, enough to ruin the display for me.

This park is awesome! There is metered on street parking. Bring change, the meters don't accept cc. The size and detail of these sculptures is impressive. It's a fun thing to do on a nice day and it's FREE!

This is actually a better extension to the Pioneer park which is a block away. If you start there and end here, you see the actual sculpted depiction of how the pioneers moved into the land, the bisons moving, and scaring the geese (which is...More

Wilderness is not present or not obvious in mid-May, but the pioneer courage is shown very good in many gorgeous sculptures. I could watch them for hours, but all the benches are in the sun, so the company is not very willing to wait that...More

We loved waking around town looking at all the bronze figures. The setting was perfect. The larger than life size made it more impressive.

One hundred twenty individual bronze sculptures depicting settlers moving West, set in a circle in a small park. Very impressive monument to what the early settlers went through.

It was the first stop on my walk around downtown. Parking can be tricky during the week. Great history lesson in the center of town. Beautiful collection of statutes.

It is great park representing historical event. I like to take my children there because it a good conversation starter about our heritage, history and lessons learned. Also, is close to other landmarks in the area, so it can become a scavenger hunt. A lot...More

Fun for kids to climb on. It is a nice piece of art. Not a must see place. If you happen to walk past I would stop.

This park is a relaxing area for a walk or enjoyable as part of a morning run. Parking is a bit limited, but if you're already downtown, it's worth strolling through.
