One of our favorite places in Dallas. We went early in the morning and it wasn’t crowded at all. Loved seeing the statues and the different brands on each steer. And seeing the difference in their appearance based on where they are located. A must see.

I visited the Dallas Cattle Drive Sculptures at Pioneer Plaza several times during my visit to Dallas in May 2022. There are maybe 40 sculptures of cattle with cowboys. It is spectacular and a great photo opportunity. You can walk around and view the cattle drive from different angles. I think it is a "must see" in Dallas. It is located not far from the Convention Center and Omni Hotel.

The Cattle Drive Sculptures are located on Pioneer Plaza in the Convention Centre district of downtown Dallas.
It is huge with tree riders and about 50 bronze steers, crossing a small waterway. The artwork is very beautiful and definitely worth a visit.

Probably very Beautiful at one time, but it is not maintained.
Ground is washed away, most all grass is gone, exposed mud and rocks. Dirt is so washed away you can see foundations for statues. Make sure you walk entire route back and forth to get the real feel of the exhibit, probably better at Night. Be careful of your footing, lots of uneven surfaces, obviously. Beautiful Bronze work.

We found the free parking lot along Griffin St and Ceremonial Dr. good for one hour but we only needed about 15 minutes to view everything.

These are realistic cattle and cowboys cast in metal and in great condition. Each one seemed to be unique all in the setting of a cattle drive frozen in time. I liked that the cattle were descending down a small hill and curving to the right to ford a small stream. The two cowboys were off to the side keeping a watchful eye on their cattle.

If adventurous then you could climb on top of these metal beasts (as some others were doing) and ride them rodeo style. Not sure one should do this though.

In the backdrop was the rest of Pioneer Park and the cemetery that contained early Dallas inhabitants.

Dallas was full of surprises and the Cattle Drive Sculptures was definitely one of them. Situated in a leafy park in the middle of the city these sculpture are all made by the same artist and his son. The tell the story of how they would transported the cattle in days gone by. I would have liked to spend more time here but it was part of a tour. Just means I will have to visit again!

Pretty cool cow sculptures. It makes you appreciate how big these cows are, and especially with their huge horns.
Too see the real cows, go to the Fort Worth Stockyards where they walk the cows down the street twice a day. Real cows with real hors.

Cattle Drive was situated in a terrible little area... Construction and stuff. But, it was an amazing sculpture. Plenty cattle stood as individuals and cowboy herding the cattle around was simply brilliant. Great composition. Memorable statue. And I didn’t count the cattle. WTF. Maybe, it’ll add to the roughness of it all. Hahahahaha.

The livestock trade and cattle drives were such an important part of Texas’ history and its great to see these sculptures on full display on one of the trade routes. The sidewalk contains a map of some of the cattle drive trails, which includes Dallas. The sculptures help provide a mental picture of the many cattle drives that flowed through Texas and Dallas! Be sure to take a quick stroll through the historic cemetery that is located next to the sculptures!

Great spot to check out a little history about Dallas. The sculptures are unique in a beautiful area close to the farmers market and other cool sights. If your in the area there’s a free 1 hour parking lot right next to it if you want to walk around for a bit.
