Iconic Image

I'd consider this an essential stop for any Dallas tourist, a major photo op. It is sort of iconic to the city's heritage. Walkable from other nearby tourist stops.

Nice statues. Would be good if they cleaned the pond and added more seating, but nice time for a few photos for the family.

This set of statues is meant to recreate the old Texas cattle drives. The detail on each statue is pretty incredible. They are all life size too. I think this is one of the highlights of downtown Dallas. It's worth checking out if you're doing a DIY city tour. It would probably be great to have a picnic here if... More

This place is a wonderful place to visit. It costs nothing but time, but your imagination can run wild thinking about the way things were "back in the day."

This wonderful display of a sculptured cattle drive is so realistic, you can envision what it was like in the old West. The minute detail on each sculpture is outstanding. Don't miss this beautifully done art work!

The sculptures are amazing. Fun to walk through them and pose with the cattle. The only thing you can't do is climb on them

I always visit here with out of town guests and it is a fun stop to take a few pictures for them to show back home. I used to think that this landmark was tacky but the cows have grown on me over the years. My guests always seem to enjoy it so that is meaningful. It's great in the... More

You can walk in and among the cattle sculptures here - there are no gates or fences to keep people out; this is a truly interactive exhibit although no climbing on the structures is permitted. This would be a great and free thing to do with children who will be dwarfed and amazed at the cattle and horses.
