What travelers say:

The Pioneer Square, built to commemorate the cowboys of the West, is famous for its large cowboys and bronze bull sculptures. Pioneer Plaza is located to the east of Dallas City Hall, near the Dallas Convention Center. Its design resembles a part of the Shawnee Trail, which was the main cattle drive route in Texas in the 19th century. In this large green area in the downtown business district of Dallas, there is a small stream flowing over the limestone cliffs, but its most notable feature is the 49 bronze sculptures of the Texas Longhorn Bull that are larger than a real person-Running Bull. These bronze bulls are being driven through parks and creeks by three cowboys on horseback. Designed by artist Robert Summers, the park is landscaping and reproduces the image of the iconic industry in early Texas. The bull run is magnificent, lifelike and unforgettable.

Additional Information

Introduction

Pioneer Plaza is delightful for people of all ages to explore. You can climb and play on the larger-than-life sculptures of cattle in the park. If you want to have your picture taken by one of the huge bronze longhorns, then that is possible too. Mixed in with the sculptures are a small waterfall and creek that are fun to explore. You can take a walk on the gravel path that offers trees and flowers that are native to the area. You can also explore the cemetery where former Dallas mayors and Texas Revolution leaders are buried.
