All the Details

The main draw at this 4-acre swath of green space, a waterfall, man-made cliffs and more is, of course, the herd of nearly 50 1,200-pound bronze steers, horses and cowboys, created by artist Robert Summers of Glen Rose. It’s the ultimate Dallas photo op, and while you’re there, you’ll also learn about the 19th-century cattle drives that took place along the Shawnee Trail, right about where you’re standing. Take time to also visit adjacent Pioneer Cemetery, and check out the 60-foot-tall Confederate Memorial and the gravesites of many of Dallas’ founding mothers and fathers. Joy Tipping/Guide
