We stopped here as part of a quick tour of the city & I'm glad we did. The cattle are really life-like...the whole "cattle drive" is very realistic putting the cattle down a small hill and through a water feature. A must-see if you are in Dallas. The only problem is lack of seating.

In Dallas and not see a cowboy!! The sculpture is pretty interesting and pretty life like and that why it attracts a lot of eyes at the place. It is definitely something that is worthy enough to be checked out but I would not travel especially to see this. It is good and no doubt a pretty impressive and creative... More

This park has a life size cattle drive bronze sculpture as its feature. The cattle are running down a small hill and across a water feature along with their cowboy minders.Very lifelike. There is also an old graveyard. This park could do with some seating as there is nowhere to sit and take in the scenery. Crossing the water feature... More

They did a nice job with this park. Not the typical, boring statutes. Unfortunately there was no place to sit and people watch.

Came across the 'Pioneer Plaza' as we were walking around Dallas. First saw a couple of bronze statues then as we got closer realised how many there actually were. Very detailed and great for a photo or two. Worth a visit if in the area.

I really enjoyed this. On the one hand, it's bronze art, but on the other hand, it makes you actually feel like you are walking through a life-sized cattle drive frozen in time. This is definitely worth checking out, especially if you are from out of the area.

Great statuary . Kind of must see and check off the list kind of thing. Does not take long but if you are from out of town you will be glad you took this in.

What a neat experience this is - to walk among the cattle as in the days of the great cattle drovers! Not only are the cattle beautifully done, but are positioned on a natural hill, as they would be 150 years ago! Two superbly cast cowboys look over the herd! All I needed to hear was Frankie Laine singing the... More

The cattle drive is neat to see, but don't miss the pioneer cemetery that is at the top of the hill. There are many headstones over 150 years old among the trees. Some are readable, others gave been weathered or missing. The two sites together take you back in time. It is very interesting to see especially if you look... More

Cowboys, horses, cattle... must be Texas. Here's something you definitely won't see everyday. So, if you're in the city, you should see this landmark which is the 2nd most visited in all of Dallas after Dealey Plaza. Walk around the whole thing to get a different vantage point and see everything there is to offer here. There are 3 different... More
