Adjacent to Pioneer Plaza and the Cattle Drive Sculpture a couple of blocks south of downtown Dallas, its worth a few minutes to visit to see the names, dates and pay respects to some of the pioneers who founded the area.

A great site for all ages! The park has a little waterfall, rocks to climb, room to walk and is a great photo spot.

If not busy, there is a small free lot between the cemetery and the bronze steer display. If not, there are parking meters on the street.
