These bronze sculptures were wow. They are so detailed - expressions on people faces, horses reaction, barrels on the cart, ropes tied, the cart stuck in mud, etc - its just amazing. Looks so real.. This is a must see place who visits Omaha.

There are 2 different areas.One with the covered wagons and another one block away of the buffalos and geese.Be sure to pass by the buffalo on the street and in the side of the building. Fun time seeing the area.

I saw this park when we were searching "things to do" and I can't express how happy I am that we went. These beautiful bronze sculptures were so lifelike. Even the expressions on the faces was amazing. This is a must see.

This beautiful sculpture garden captures the spirit of pioneering America. The bronze sculptures are so beautiful capturing the facial expressions of the travelers and their animals. The detail of the fabrics so real and touchable in bronze is truly worth seeing.

This was amazing to see. The artistic talent that went into the sculptures is incredible. This is open to all, on a street corner, and free to walk about and take pictures. Well worth a visit and children will love the animals.....

It doesn't have to take long to see these wonderful bronzes but if you really wanted to take your time and contemplate the lives these pioneers lived, you spend an hour or longer. The larger than life statues of the people and animals that forged...More

These sculptures were so descriptive if you take time to really look at them. Look at the ground to see the wagon wheels stuck in the ruts. Check out what the pioneers carried on their wagons. I wonder what was stored inside the locked box...More
