2nd most visited Dallas tourist attraction. Commemorates The Shawnee Cattle Trail that started in south central Texas via Dallas to Kansas City back before Dallas had railroads Currently, 49 longhorn steers and three cowboys on horseback bronze statutes larger than life-size. No duplicates. Steers no less than 6 feet tall; cowboys, 10 - 16 feet high. Remarkable detail. Spread out over 4.5 acres. Free. Recommended. .

I thoroughly enjoyed the Pioneer Plaza Cattle Drive. One had the distinct feeling that you were transported back to the times of the Chisolm Trail. Looking forward to going back to Dallas and seeing the Pioneer Plaza once again.

Sometimes public art is really bad, and sometimes it is really good. In the case of the cattle drive taking place in Pioneer Plaza, it's the latter. I was attending a professional conference taking place in the Dallas Convention Center across the street and I talked to lots of people who mentioned walking over just to check it out, after having seen it on their way to the conference. Worth a visit to hang out with the giant cows and cowboys!
