The Cattle Drive Sculpture is amazing and easily worth the short stroll from downtown Dallas, Reunion Tower or Union Station. The Plaza is also adjacent to the old Dallas cemetery for those who learn about the people from cemetery visits.

Such a wonderful work of art! The statues were fabulous replicas of the amazing time in history that cowboys drove giant herds if longhorns up the Chisholm Trail to sell their cattle in Kansas. The story of how the Chisholm Trail is a fascinating one these statues brought the story to life. The kids loved it too!

This is a really nice half hour stop...kids of all ages will think this is great. A herd of longhorns and 3 cowboys keeping them in line. It covers a larger area than expected and "crossing the river" even feels a little dangerous! Lots of fun and great photo ops. We stopped in the evening and parked at a meter... More

We stopped here as part of the Dallas City Tour. It's OK. Lots of bronze horses. I wouldn't go out of my way to see this, but if you;re nearby, it might be worth a visit.

There's wasn't much to read about but the bulls were cool to look at. I took my friend who was visiting from Houston and she loved it too.

This is a park that resembles the cattle that used to roam around that area. Great for pictures and for walking around.

The cattle muster sculptures are located in town and are a brilliant setting of what it must be like in the past and out on some of the ranches. Loved it. It's set over a ridge coming down towards a water feature.

We had intended to walk by there during our stay and just never did. So on the way out of town I said let's just drive by and see if we can park. They have several parking places. It was just SO COOL! About 50 sculptures of cattle and 3 cowboys - the herd is going down a hill, and... More
